Trooper, cadet pull woman from burning car
By Liz F. Kay
BALTIMORE — An Anne Arundel County woman owes her life to a Maryland State Police corporal and cadet who pulled her from a burning minivan yesterday, moments before it was engulfed in flames.
About 6:30 a.m., a Hyundai minivan driven by Melody Grimm, 57, of Crofton went off the road at U.S. 301 near Leeland Drive in Prince George's County, state police said. An off-duty corrections officer saw the accident and stopped at the Upper Marlboro Scale House, where Cpl. John P. Griffin and Cadet Andrew Neall were on duty checking trucks for safety violations.
