Sending prayers to the two people. Involved in head on collision. On hwy 50 East in Bedford, Indiana. The Woman was sitting up. And talking. The man was trapped in the burning vehicle. Just want to say . Great job to everyone . Who stopped and worked relentlessly. To free the man. The car burst into flames. About 2 minutes after the man was removed from his car. You are all heroes today. One thing I learned today. Every vehicle should have a fire extinguisher. Thank you to the homeowner. On hwy 50 for having a fire extinguisher. You helped save this man too. God Bless to all families involved. Susan
