NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Titans linebacker Jonathan "Tig" Willard says he helped rescue a family from a burning vehicle on his way to Tennessee training camp.


The rookie was driving on Interstate 40 Tuesday near Oak Ridge when he noticed a sports utility vehicle smoking. He first told TigerNet.com that he flashed his lights and honked his horn to get the driver to pull over when he saw flames shoot out the back.


Willard said Wednesday he handed an infant to the woman before pulling out another child. A second man rescued a third child and the family's dog with the SUV exploding into flames a couple minutes later.


A Tennessee Highway Patrol report shows the SUV of Cheri Hubbard of South Daytona, Fla., caught fire and burned Tuesday afternoon.
