We were walking our dog , it was SUV not pickup, no flames that we saw however we arrived 3 minutes after sound of crash . People were asking if anyone was hurt and there was no response . Other vehicles were pulled over to the side of E looking to help. It seemed approximately 5 minutes before emergency respondents arrive. Good job. Prayers up .

So here is what happened. The truck ran a red light and t boned the SUV. The SUV then got flung into the gas price sign. The truck then drove down the road towards fresh freeze where it stopped and a fire broke out. Yes he had a head injury but not much else you reported was true. I am only commenting because I was the one who got ran into. I was the one in the SUV.
