SWAT officers with Houston police rescued a wrong-way driver after their vehicle burst into flames following a crash on Highway 288 early Monday, police said.
At around 2 a.m., police said the driver was traveling south on the northbound lanes and that was when they apparently struck a concrete divider. The crash was severe enough to cause the vehicle to burst into flames.
SWAT officers, who police said had finished up a warrant in southeast Houston, found the vehicle engulfed in flames and jumped in to rescue the driver.
The wrong-way driver was treated by paramedics and appeared OK.
No one else was injured in the crash.
It is unknown if the wrong-way driver will be facing any charges.
