The video shows the moment of the crash and the vehicle was just feet away from one of the cars that burst into flames.  Bystanders jumped into action rescuing a woman from her car.  She escaped with only cuts and bruises. The tractor was later found to have bad brakes.

The mayor's video has been viewed 500,000 times in 12 hours. Mayor Rich David said even though these people were in crisis they navigated through flames and broken glass to save a stranger's life.  He made the dash cam video public in hopes of finding and recognizing the people involved in the rescue.  He said "Binghamton is safer because of you."

Ten people were injured in the incident on Route 17.
