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.
