A witness posted dramatic video on Facebook, claiming that she "just saw God" along a Tennessee interstate.

A hit-and-run accident caused a Jeep to veer off of I-385, hit a pole, then burst into flames with the driver trapped inside.

As good Samaritans stopped to try to free the man, Anita Irby captured the video on her cell phone.

A passerby broke the window with a jack iron, while another doused the man with a gallon of water, to protect him from the flames, as was pinned against the steering wheel.

You can hear several loud popping sounds coming from the burning vehicle, and witnesses screaming, fearing the SUV would explode.

Irby is heard repeatedly proclaiming, "Blood of Jesus, blood of Jesus," until a Memphis police officer and other drivers pulled the man to safety.

"The others went up in prayer for God to deliver this man from the paws of the devil," Irby wrote on her Facebook page.

And when the smoke cleared, rescuers found a Bible in the ashes intact, and prayed together at the scene.

"None of the flames touched him and even after the car exploded once All these God blessed people ran back up ... End of Story he's Alive and well... Jesus that's my God," wrote Irby.

The man was taken to the hospital in non-critical condition.

No word on whether the driver who caused the crash has been caught.
