WALKER, Mich. (WZZM) -- A car fire on US-131 slowed things down Tuesday morning, but thanks to some good Samaritans, no one was hurt.
It was about 7:45 in the morning. Darcy Swope was on her way to work. She says the woman driving ahead of her had sparks coming from her car. "After a few minutes, I realized it was fire dripping from under her car. So I went around her and honked my horn to get her to pull over. And she did."
As soon at the driver came to a stop, Darcy ran up up to her. "I said, 'Get out your car. It’s on fire, get out, get out!'"
The driver went to Darcy's car and they called 911. As they waited for the fire department, another good Samaritan pulled up. "There was a Coopersville volunteer firefighter. He pulled in and went up to the car to make sure everyone was out. Then, he started directing traffic away from that lane."
