Three people escape from burning car | News
Three people escaped from their burning car on the Pennyrile Parkway Monday afternoon.
It happened near the Hanson and Slaughters exit on the parkway.
The people inside the car say a driver pulled over because he saw flames underneath the car, and they credit him with saving their lives.
"I was sitting in the backseat and all of a sudden, my grandma and soon to be grandpa looks behind us and says, 'Get out,'" James Ermert said.
"Well the guy behind us saw the smoke and flames come out from underneath the car and he pulled us over. We jumped out and it went into flames," passenger Velrey Powell said.
Traffic was shut down as crews put out the fire. The roadway is now open.
