Khoren Moughalian, Jason Abraham, Good Samaritans, Rescued Man From Burning Car (VIDEO)

Two Good Samaritans risked their lives to rescue an alleged drunk driver from his burning car Sunday.

Timothy Truc, 23, lost control of his car at 3:20 a.m. on the 405 freeway near the 101 freeway in Sherman Oaks, NBC reports. Luckily for him, Khoren Moughalian and Jason Abraham both stopped their cars right away to help.

Moughalian, an off-duty security guard, used a large knife to quickly cut Truc's seatbelt and pull the motorist -- who was unconscious -- out of his still-burning car.

"I had a knife on me, so I pulled him out and the car started blowing up," Mourjhian told KTLA.

"The car was on fire, and I didn't know if it was going to explode," Abraham, said. "We just needed to get him out as soon as possible."

Truc's car had crossed all four lanes on the northbound 405, hit the divider, flipped, caught fire and ended up in the southbound lanes, ABC reports.

After being treated at the hospital for moderate injuries, Truc was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, the Los Angeles Times reports.
