CORPUS CHRISTI - A Corpus Christi police officer steps in to save the life a man who crashed his car into a pole along I-37 last night.
The officer pulled 34-year--old Shawn Hardeman from his burning car around 11 p.m.
Despite attempts at CPR, Hardeman didn't make it. Authorities say he suffered severe burns from the crash and fire.
Investigators believe Hardeman veered off the access road and drove up the embankment where he hit the pole.
