VIRGINIA, Mo. (KMOX) – A passerby is being credited with helping two men escape their burning pick up truck on I-55 near Virginia early this afternoon.

A witness tells KMOX the other motorist pulled alongside the truck and told the men it was on fire.

Seconds after they pulled over and got out, the truck, which had propane tanks among other items in the bed, was fully engulfed in flames.

The men were shaken, but otherwise unhurt. They said they were just glad to still be alive!
