A Pickup Goes Up in Flames After Overturning on George Price Highway

There were two other accidents, which were not fatal, but left victims traumatized. Robert Logan, a motorist traveling along the George Price Highway, is lucky to have escaped grave injuries over the weekend when his vehicle overturned and caught on fire.  Sometime around ten-thirty on Saturday morning, Logan was driving a blue Ford Ranger pickup along the stretch of road when one of his tires suddenly punctured.  At the speed that he was driving, Logan lost control of the vehicle which flipped multiple times before coming to rest off the highway.  During the incident he was flung from the pickup and moments later the vehicle became engulfed in flames.  A News Five team was at the scene of the accident shortly thereafter where thick, acrid plume could be seen from a distance.  The badly injured driver was hardly moving as he lay on the ground not far from the burning wreckage.  This morning, Senior Superintendent Edward Broaster spoke briefly on the near-fatal mishap.
