A witness said he helped drag the victim to safety before the car burst into flames.

“There was a guy passed out about a foot away from his car whenever it was on fire. I had to drag the guy about 40 yards to get him to safety and call police,” said Levi Morarie.

Morarie was one of at least two people who called 911.

Fire investigators said the victim was hit in the head with a mason jar, which then caught the car on fire.

No suspects have been identified.
