A Long Island man was saved from a burning vehicle after a crash by two Suffolk County Police Second Precinct officers.

The rescue occurred around 6:45 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 19, when Mark Levy, of Melville, was driving a 2010 Hyundai northbound on Walt Whitman Road in South Huntington, when he crashed into the guardrail, said the Suffolk County Police.

Officers Joelvy Delacruz and Thomas Phelan arrived on the scene within minutes and found the vehicle on fire and several Good Samaritans attempting to help Levy, who was unconscious in the driver’s seat, police said.

Huntington firefighters work to douse a car fire following a crash.

Officers Delacruz and Phelan, with the help of the Good Samaritans, were able to safely remove Levy from the car.

Levy, 51, was taken via ambulance to Plainview Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. No other injuries were reported from the scene.

The crash is under investigation. The names of the Good Samaritans were not available.
