    I was two cars behind the tractor trailer and helped pull the driver out. It appeared that a car cut the truck off and he jackknifed and the truck just laid down and slid into the concrete median and as I got out of my car, the cab was already in flames. The driver was trying to kick his way out from the inside and someone slid a metal rod up to the truck and we broke through the windshield and got the driver out and to safety. The truck was not speeding or driving reckless, he was in the middle lane and in appeared that a car from the fast lane cut in front of him and he had to slam on the brakes to keep from hitting him.
