YONKERS, N.Y. -- A "good Samaritan" pulled a driver from a car after it caught fire in Yonkers on Sunday, fire officials told LoHud.

Assistant Fire Chief Larry Dunn told LoHud the driver would have most likely died had it not been for the person who saved him.

Neither man involved in the incident on Grassy Sprain Road was identified. The person who was pulled from the car refused medical attention at the scene, according to the report. The accident occurred around 4 p.m. after the car reportedly swerved into a utility pole, causing a live wire to drop and ignite the car and nearby grass, according to the report.

The crash is under investigation.
