Three escape fiery crash

A 20-year-old male driver and two 16-year-old passengers were injured when a 1993 Nissan Sentra went off the road in the 700 block of 232 Street on Friday afternoon (May 27) around 4:30 p.m. and burst into flames.

One passenger had to transported by helicopter to hospital.

Injuries to the other passenger and the driver were described as minor by police.

Police said the Nissan Sentra was southbound on 232 Street and drove off the left (east) side of the road. The vehicle became partially airborne and careened off one tree, broke a second tree and came to rest on the passenger side wrapped around two other trees.

The three occupants escaped before the Nissan became engulfed in flame.

Speeding is believed to be a factor
