Shortly before 1 a.m. on March 15, a two-door car travelling on the Auburn/Enumclaw Highway flipped, caught fire and crashed into a utility pole. Two passengers were killed. The driver and two other passengers in the car survived, three of which suffered burns. A nearby resident pulled two of the survivors from the fiery crash, and took another survivor to the ground to put out a fire on his shirt. The resident suffered burns on his hands and leg from his heroic efforts. Authorities believe speed and alcohol were a factor in the accident and will arrest the 18-year-old driver once he has been released from the hospital.
Those injured in this accident should contact a personal injury attorney to discuss their options and preserve their rights.
