LOGAN, Utah - (AP) - Bystanders in Utah are being lauded as heroes after they lifted a burning BMW off an unconscious motorcyclist trapped beneath it.

Authorities say the accident Monday near the Utah State University campus in Logan happened when 21-year-old motorcyclist Brandon Wright collided with a car pulling out from a parking lot.

The bike and car burst into flames and Wright was trapped underneath.

A camera nearby captured a group of students and construction workers gathering together to tilt the car up and pull the young man to safety before emergency crews arrived.

The onlookers also used fire extinguishers from the college campus to put out the flames.

Wright was taken to the hospital in critical condition. The driver of the BMW had minor injuries.
