Posted on June 16, 2008 3:06 am under Car Accidents

A firefighter heading to his station witnessed a horrific accident. In the accident, 4 passenger vehicles were trapped by an 18-wheeler. One of the vehicles was trapped by the 18-wheeler’s cab and burst into flames.

Fortunately for the driver of the burning car, the wind was blowing the flames, which were mainly on the passenger side, away from the car. This made it safer for the driver’s rescuers, including the firefighter, to remove her from the car. Shortly after the woman was removed from the burning vehicle, the fire spread to the truck’s cab.

The driver of the burning car was seriously burned and Med Flighted to a hospital in Madison. The rescuers were not harmed and neither were the occupants of the 18-wheeler.
