ARP Posted December 26, 2018 Share Posted December 26, 2018 Went to breakfast with a few local guys, was on my way home on a 4 lane divided highway. I see a vehicle going the opposite direction, flames are licking out from underneath. He on fire. I have a small extinguisher in my vehicle. I did a U turn down at the next intersection, drive back to the vehicle which is now off the road, driver out and away from vehicle. I stop, grab the extinguisher, get near the vehicle and try to hose it down where I see fire. Too far gone, ran out of retardant, I had to pull back and let it burn and wait for the local VFD. I begin talking with the driver, his hair is all singed. When he stopped and tried getting out of the car, flames came out from underneath and his seat belt was still clipped, he had to get back in the seat, release the belt and then get flamed a second time. Turns out the guy just picked up the vehicle from a local repair shop that supposedly replaced the fuel lines and said the vehicle ran fine, but the battery was dead so the sent the owner out in it to drive it a little to charge it up. Guy is an attorney, I smell lawsuit. 4 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
