The Fayetteville Observer reported that a man sustained third-degree burns in a fire caused by a North Carolina car accident Thursday night. The 42-year-old Fayetteville man was taken to UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill in critical condition.
Witnesses told police the North Carolina auto accident victim revved his engine before flames erupted from the bottom of the car. A police sergeant said the victim appeared to have veered off the road and slammed into a power box around 8 p.m.
