Authorities on scene tell FOX 8 that a good samaritan riding a bike nearby helped rescue a woman that was trapped inside the home. The good samaritan used a piece of concrete to break the glass door to get the woman out. 

Her injuries are unknown.

A dog was killed in the accident due to smoke inhalation.

The driver of the pick-up truck was cited for failure to yield.

River Road is closed at Shrewsburry.
