Witnesses of fiery southwest freeway crash watch man burn to death

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON (FOX 26) -

"He never woke up this morning with that on his mind," said Georgia Roach as a single tear dropped down her face. " It's sad, it's sad."

And Roach and her sister Christiana didn't wake up thinking this would be the day they would see something impossible to forget.

The SUV looks like a smashed toy after the postal service cargo truck lands of top of it.

As the 18 wheeler dangles from the side of the freeway eyewitnesses try to save a man caught in the fiery crash.

"Begging for help you know he's halfway burning," said Mazi Keyghoeadi.

"He came from the window he came out he said help," said Mary Azari. "We took a mattress from here outside."

"And everybody is like jump jump and he's just screaming help help," said Roach.

"We were just hoping he would move or get up but nothing happened we just stepped back," said Keyghoeadi."At that point I was kind of in shock."

"We told him jump he couldn't jump," Azari said. "And little by little burning and burning it's a shame you know we couldn't help him."

The postal worker driving the 18wheeler walked away without a scratch.

These sisters are still stunned after watching a man die.

"Even like now he's still there he's like hanging there," Roach said. "It's too sad."

Hearing the man's final screams for help will be a sound some of the witnesses say is a sound they will hear from now on.

"His voice is in my ear you know," Azari said.

"It's like something that's going to stay with me for the rest of my life," Roach said. "It will always be there."
