A Marine sergeant went "above and beyond" to help a motorist escape from a burning truck on I-85 near Old Peachtree Road.
On March 9, Sgt. Matthew Sullivan, a recruiter at the Buford Marine recruiting substation, saw the truck ablaze on the shoulder of the roadway. Sullivan pulled over and saw a man covered in flames exiting the vehicle.
Sullivan instructed the 26-year-old driver to drop to the ground and start rolling to extinguish the flames, according to a Defense Video and Imagery Distribution System report.
