Sunday night's rescue was captured on dashboard and bodycam video.

“As soon as I got out of my scout car there were a bunch of bystanders telling me someone was trapped,” Pauley tells WDIV.

“Somehow he made it into the passenger seat,” Pauley said. “It looked like he was trying to get himself ... I reached my hand in ... I was able to unlock the door, pulled him to safety.”

The 23-year-old driver was in and out of consciousness throughout the rescue, the station reports. He's expected to recover.
