BEUAVILLE, NC (WECT) - A passing driver helped rescue a man from his burning motorcycle Friday morning.

Brown hit the bike and it skidded.

Someone driving nearby saw the accident and pulled the motorcyclist from underneath the bike as it caught on fire.

The bike rider had minor burns, and Brown was charged with unsafe movement.
