The massive truck’s trail of destruction started when its brakes reportedly failed as it drove down the busy highway last Thursday.

After the horror multi-vehicle pile up one of the cars is left smashed into the central reservation.

It quickly bursts into flames.

Drivers are then seen running towards the burning car, reaching into the window and bravely dragging the woman driver to safety.

Others then put out the remainder of the blaze with fire extinguishers.

The Mayor of Binghamton, David Rich, shared the incredible footage on Facebook.

He praised those who helped as ‘brave individuals’, and thanked them on behalf of the community.
