AMARILLO -- Two Amarillo Police Officers have been awarded the medal of valor.

Corporal Caleb Finsterwald and Officer Dustin Glick responded to a car fire near I-40 and Soncy back in December.

The two officers pulled the driver out of an SUV that had rear ended a semi truck and burst into flames.

The officers were awarded the medals for risking their own lives to try and save the driver.
