COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - Emergency crews, including the Columbus Police Department and Columbus Fire & EMS, responding to the scene of an accident near Exit 10 on I-185 northbound Monday afternoon.
A witness tells News Leader 9 he was working in the area when he heard a loud sound and saw the car on fire. He says he then rushed over to pull the man out.
“We put the fire out, and then, like, a window was broken. So, then, I was hollering for the guy, or occupants or whatever and nobody answered,” said bystander Matthew McFadden. “So, I got the door open and he was in his seatbelt stuck upside down and he was responsive and said he was okay. So, we got the seatbelt down and we got him out the car.”
The driver of the vehicle was transported to a hospital with unknown injuries.
The cause of the crash is unknown at this time.
