About 2 o’clock Saturday morning, two West Haven Police officers found a burning vehicle on Derby Avenue.
The vehicle had crashed into a utility pole, and the driver was still inside.
Police say the flames got more intense, and the driver appeared to be in danger.
The officers smashed a window, and pulled the driver out.
West Haven resident Rory Frazier was taken to the hospital. He was later arrested on several motor vehicle charges.
