The crash happened on the eastbound side of I-385 near Memphis on Sunday afternoon. The 2014 Jeep Laredo struck a pole and burst into flames.

The Memphis Police Department responded to the scene. An officer and several Good Samaritans were able to pull the trapped driver out of the vehicle only moments before it exploded.

After firefighters extinguished the fire, officials found an undamaged Bible in the passenger seat of the vehicle.

The driver was taken to Regional Medical Center with non-critical injuries.
