BRIDGEWATER TOWNSHIP, N.J. (CBSNewYork) -- Two New Jersey state troopers dragged a driver from his burning truck seconds before it exploded Monday.

It happened on Interstate 287 in Bridgewater Township.

The troopers say the tractor trailer ran off the side of the highway and slammed into a guardrail before bursting into flames.
