Officials at Graham Regional Medical Center say all of those involved in a wreck Tuesday afternoon have been released and they say one hero has quite the story to tell.

The accident happened around 4pm about five miles South of the Bunger Y on Highway 16 just outside the Graham city limits in Young County.

Authorities say following the wreck between a Kia Sorento and a Chevy Blazer S-10, the Chevy skidded into the embankment on the highway and burst into flames.

That's when Cody Dunsworth flew into action.

Cody Dunsworth says, "By the time I ran to the car that was in the trees, I assessed the female patient, made sure she was okay and once she gave me the all clear that she was okay I went back down the hill and headed towards the car that was on fire. By the time I got to the car on fire, it was too late. It was already fully engulfed so I went back to my truck and grabbed my fire extinguisher." 

Graham firefighters say the flames from teh car also sparked a small grass fire, which firefighters had out in a matter of minutes.

Graham Regional Medical Center officials say all of those involved in the accident had been released from the hospital by late on Tuesday night.

After being delayed for a few hours, traffic was also once again flowing smoothly on Highway 16 near Graham.
