 LA CROSSE (WKOW) -- Two police officers from the La Crosse area rescued victims of a fiery crash near Versailles, Kentucky on their way home from vacation.

Officer Jovanna Randall from the La Crosse Police Department and Officer Jeremy Randall of West Salem were driving home from Lexington, Kentucky when they saw a tractor and car in flames on Highway 60 Tuesday.

Our affiliate, WXOW, says Jovanna directed traffic around the crash while Jeremy and two other pried open the driver's side door of the car to get the victim out.

Jeremy flagged down a cement truck to get their hose and water and begun to extinguish the flames.  Jeremy and an off-duty Kentucky State Trooper found the victim in the tractor and led him to an ambulance.

Both victims in the crash were brought to a hospital with serious, but non-life threatening injuries.

WXOW talked with Jovanna who says they were simply doing their job.  Jovanna says, "I don't know if it's all law enforcement, or just us, but it's just a natural instinct to get out and do what you're trained to do."
