Vehicle engulfed in flames at Texas Jack In The Box drive thru

Luckily Officer Chris Womack, judging the wreck to be "dangerously close" to the building, did not hesitate to barge it away using his patrol vehicle.

Dash cam footage has captured the actions of a Texas police officer who came to the rescue of a restaurant by using his patrol auto to push a flaming pick-up truck out of harm's way.

An officer with the Glenn Heights Police Department, located just south of Dallas, responded to a call around 9:15 p.m. February 11 at a local Jack in the Box restaurant.

Jumping the curb with his patrol auto, the officer was able to push the vehicle away from the restaurant.

If Womack hadn't acted quickly, the restaurant may have burst into flames.

Officer Womack nudged the truck with his patrol vehicle. Thanks for being a local hero, Officer Womack! "It was just a God-send that I was here at that particular time".

Glenn Heights police on Facebook commended Womack for his "courage and quick thinking" that kept employees safe and prevented major damage to the building.
