Car Bursts into Flames After Horrific Crash, Bystanders Fear the Worst

BROOKSVILLE – A horrific two vehicle crash at the intersection of Powell Road and California Street this morning left bystanders fearing the worst, and they certainly didn’t expected the occupants of either vehicle to walk away without serious injuries, or walk away at all.

According to unconfirmed witness accounts, the pickup truck pictured below may have run the red light while traveling north on California Street. The car was traveling eastbound on Powell Road and the two vehicles collided as they crossed the intersection.

The pickup truck came to rest on its side and the car was propelled into a nearby field where it burst into flames, moments after all the occupants escaped the wreckage.

According to officials, the driver of the pickup was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries. There are no reports of injuries from any occupant inside the car.

Heavy fog  may have been a contributing factor in the cause of the crash.

Bystanders sent in the incredible images below…

  • The level of all the commentors compassion is mind-blowing. They even state that heavy fog could have played a factor but everybody is so ready to condemn someone always. It’s why they call them “ACCIDENTS”. At least wait until the investigation gives you all the facts.

    • For that kind of damage, somebody was going to fast. If fog was involved, somebody was going to fast. If you can’t see because of fog, slow down. If you can’t see, there is no reason to being that fast to cause that much damage, end of story/

    • They are called crashes, by accident investigators. Driver error and/or Driving conditions usually are factors.
