Jamestown Man Pulled From Burning Crash

The quick action of two Twain Harte men may have saved the life of a 22 year-old Jamestown resident early Saturday morning.

While driving on Standard Road near Curtis Creek Elementary School, Dustin Miller failed to negotiate a sharp turn and slammed into an oak tree. His Jeep Cherokee caught fire with him inside.

Greg Lang and Ryan Peck came across the wreck moments later.

While the 25-year-old Lang drove for help, 24 year-old Peck used a rock to break the side window and tried to free the trapped and unconscious driver.

MillerĀ“s clothes were on fire as Peck pulled him from the burning wreckage.

Miller was taken to Tuolumne General Hospital then to UC Davis Burn Center with burns to his arms legs and face as well as cuts on face and arms.
