A west bound SUV and an east bound sedan had collided at a curve in the road. A passerby had pulled one driver, a 74-year-old man from Erin, from the sedan. The driver of the SUV, a 53-year-old Erin man, was trapped. As the officer and two passersby attempted to pull the semiconscious man from the SUV it erupted into fire. The man was narrowly pulled from the vehicle suffering injuries including smoke inhalation.
