'A Sign of Divine Intervention': Bible Survives 'Miraculously' Undamaged As SUV Burns To Ashes

A Bible in an SUV's front seat was the only thing left untouched after the vehicle caught fire and exploded moments before the driver was rescued by a group of Good Samaritans on Sunday in Tennessee.

Police say the accident happened in Memphis when the 2014 Jeep Laredo left the road, hit a pole and burst into flames on State Route 385 near Ridgeway Road and Kirby Parkway around 2.30pm, WREG reported.

The male driver was trapped inside of the SUV as the flames began to quickly spread.

Several cars stopped alongside the highway as other drivers attempted to get the driver out before the flames increased. 

Once Memphis Police Officer Richard Morrow joined the group of Good Samaritans, the rescue attempt proved successful. 

WREG reported that Morrow and Eugene McNeil were able to get the man's seat belt off and pull him out of the car before it was fully engulfed in flames. 

He was taken to Regional Medical Center with non-critical injuries, according to WREG. 

Authorities found a Bible on the passenger seat unharmed from the fire once the flames were extinguished.

According to WREG, witnesses who helped bring the driver to safety called it 'a sign of divine intervention.' 

Anita Irby, one of the people on scene of the potentially deadly accident, shared a video to Facebook showing people surrounding the car trying to get the driver out. 

In her post that has been shared more than 50,000 times, she wrote: 'I just saw GOD on 385. I'm always in awh (sic) of his wonders but today just blew my mind. 
'This car ran off the road and hit a metal post and burst into flames not to mention the passenger was trapped inside as the car was filled with smoke the flames began to fill the inside. 

THE ENTIRE EXPRESSWAY STOPPED and people ran from their cars trying to break the windows and open the doors of this mans car to free him, as they were the others went up in prayer for God to deliver this man from the paws of the devil.... Now it appeared our prayers was in vain because he couldn't move and the flames had reach the inside of the truck.
'But God!!!!!! .....the flames were on the inside but the way my God is set up The Way It Look Like and what it is ,None of the flames touched him and even after the car exploded once All these God blessed people ran back up ...Now the passenger even begged them to just let him die . End of Story he's Alive and well. ...... Jesus thats (sic) my Goddd (sic)'.
