In brief: SAFE?TO EXTRICATE
I can not recommend that due to the lability issues.
If you want to be good samaritan you have to sure mind that if you do extricate will it make the injuries worse, and you are liable for that in this litigenous envoirenment.Some states have good samaritan laws for traffic accident rescuers.But in 2008 a woman was sued for rescue effort in car crash, she pulled a waman out of the car.
