Texas cop uses patrol auto to push burning truck from restaurant

Texas cop uses patrol auto to push burning truck from restaurant

A rookie police officer had just finished dinner with his wife Saturday when he heard a call about a vehicle on fire in the drive-through lane at the local Jack in the Box.

A quick-thinking cop who came upon a truck engulfed in flames outside a busy restaurant in the U.S. rammed the vehicle clear before the fire could spread to the building.

The officer then pushed the truck out of the drive-thru line and away from the restaurant.

The driver got his wife and daughter out of the auto, but could not move the stricken pick-up and left it blocking access to the driveway.

He got it to roll into the parking lot, preventing major damage to the building.

Finally, BMO Capital Markets reiterated a "buy" rating on shares of Manulife Financial Corp in a report on Friday, November 11th. The company reported the earnings of $0.37/Share in the last quarter where the estimated EPS by analysts was $0.34/share.

Officer Womack told Fox News, "My adrenaline was going a little bit".

On Tuesday, Glenn Heights Police Department shared dashcam footage of the incident, which was recorded from Womack's cruiser, on Facebook.

It wasn't clear what became of the pickup's driver or what caused it to catch fire.

The quick thinking of the officer might have saved the lives of the employees inside, police said.
