Quick-Thinking Cop Rams Blazing Truck Away From Fast Food Drive-Thru

The incident happened after Officer Chris Womack received a call on February 11 about the truck on fire in the drive-thru line of a Jack-in-the-Box.

Officers responded at 9 p.m. Saturday to the Jack in the Box at 1703 S. Beckley Road.

"An officer was able to successfully move the vehicle away from the structure utilizing his patrol vehicle and no injuries were reported", police said in the video.

Dash cam footage from the squad vehicle showed the officer pull up behind the flaming truck that was dangerously close to the drive-through.

Thanks to his quick thinking, major damage to the building was prevented.

"My adrenaline was going a little bit". The driver managed to escape but the fire was quickly spreading, threatening to catch the building on fire as well.

The Glenn Heights Police Department posted the video on its Facebook and wrote, "I would like to commend Officer Chris Womack".

"It was just a God-send that I was here at that particular time", he told Fox 29.
