Timothy James Krieger saved Kenneth W. Lease from burning, Mounds View, Minnesota, October 3, 1994. Dazed, Lease, 40, remained in the driver’s seat of his car after it was struck in the rear and broke into flames in a highway accident. Timothy, 17, high school student, witnessed the accident from nearby. He immediately ran to the driver’s door of the burning car and attempted to open it, but it was jammed. He then ran to the front passenger door and opened it. With flames issuing from the rear of the car and spreading to the back seat, Timothy entered the car through the passenger door and grasped Lease. He pulled Lease from the car and took him to the other side of the highway moments before the car was engulfed in flames. Lease required hospital treatment for injuries sustained in the accident.
