Assemblyman rescues trapped motorists

This from Capitol Weekly:

“Thank goodness we weren’t in lockdown last night.”

Those were the words of freshman Assemblyman Curt Hagman, who pulled two people from a burning car in downtown Sacramento at 8:30 p.m. Monday evening. Moments later, the vehicle exploded.

Hagman, R-Chino Hills, said he was in his apartment near 5th and N when he heard a crash outside.

He went downstairs to investigate and saw that a car had struck a parked pickup truck The car’s doors were jammed shut, and two people were trapped inside.

Hagman helped the male driver and his female passenger from the car. The driver immediately ran off, and the woman was found later to have a blood-alcohol level of .33, Hagman said, about four times the legal limit for a driver in California
