Car fire from icy roads

Car fire from icy crash

While driving a friends new car back to his house a woman lost control on the ice in the oncoming lane, fish-tailed, over corrected, hit a bolder in the median and  shot in front of me into a light pole. I pulled around and did a rapid trauma assessment, as I did her car erupted in flames. She was uninjured other then a seatbelt bruise and being shaken from the crash. Temperature was around 10 degrees and I did not have my EMT kit. I am glad she had no real injurys. I had her stay warm in my friends Jeep while we waited for AFD and APD which took about 30 minutes.  All was fine in the end other then the toasted car.
