A Phoenix police officer went above and beyond the call of duty Saturday as he helped pull a man from the wreckage of a serious accident.

The two-car crash happened just before 5 p.m. near Central and Northern avenues.

A sedan and an SUV crashed, resulting in the injuries of a man and woman.

The officer, who has only been on the force for about a year, helped firefighters pull the man out of the twisted metal of his smashed-up vehicle.
