Late on Monday, two teenagers in Georgia were driving in a 1998 Lincoln Towncar when the driver lost control of the vehicle.
“An initial investigation by SPD’s Traffic Investigation Unit (TIU) revealed the driver, Jaydon Brown, 18, failed to maintain his lane and struck a light pole and tree before striking another tree head on,” the Savannah Police Department posted on Facebook.
“The impact resulted in the vehicle spinning and coming to a rest in the middle of the roadway, where it caught fire.”
While the driver was able to exit the vehicle, the passenger was not. The door on her side had become stuck due to the accident.
Police arrived and acted quickly to extract the 18-year-old woman trapped in the burning vehicle. In total, seven officers worked together on the scene, and the police department recently released their body camera footage to show how serious the situation was.
