Woman Pulled From Flaming Car by Sheriff's Deputy


Quick thinking from Sheriff's deputies as they rush to save a woman from a burning car on the side of an Ohio highway. Investigators say a 60-year-old woman's foot got stuck on the accelerator after she suffered a diabetic emergency.

CBS News travel editor Peter Greenberg says to take a piece of duct tape and write your name and cell phone number and put it on the inside of your bag.
