Va. teen honored for saving motorist

By Washington Post editors

Prince William County officials honored 18-year-old Chris Berger on Tuesday for risking his life to pull a man from an overturned and burning sport utility vehicle, the Washington Examiner reports.

On Aug. 21, Berger was traveling down Logmill Road in Haymarket when a woman waved him down and pointed toward an upside-down Hummer engulfed in flames. Berger said he didn't intend to get close to the vehicle but he heard someone knocking from the inside. He ran to the SUV and yanked open the door.
