Good Samaritan Saves Man in Oceana Co. Crash

A good samaritan pulled a man out of a burning car in Oceana County, likely saving his life.

The sheriff’s office says it happened on South Scenic Drive in Claybanks Township on Monday.

The driver had swerved to avoid a deer, veered off the road and hit a tree.

When first responders got there, they found a car on fire.

Deputies say the driver was laying along the road with serious injuries. He was taken to the hospital but is expected to be OK.

Deputies say Matthew Beebe, a Holland resident, is the one who pulled the driver out of the car’s window—despite heavy smoke and heat.

Below is Beebee’s Facebook post about the experience. He tells the driver to “heal up, brother, and God bless!”
