Man pulled from burning vehicle

OHSWEKEN — Two people were injured in a collision Friday morning, with one man being pulled from a burning vehicle by local residents who hear the crash.

Six Nations Police say a sedan was driving eastbound on Sixth Line when it went off the road near 2577 Sixth Line into the ditch, travelling until it hit the other side of the driveway, rolling and hitting a hydro pole.

Hydro lines were downed in the crash and a man was reported trapped inside the vehicle.

When police arrived the vehicle was completely destroyed by fire. Local residents heard the collision and found the vehicle on it’s side with one person trapped inside. Another resident in the area used a fire extinguisher to douse the flames and pulled the man out of the burning car.

The driver sustained serious injuries and was taken to hospital by ambulance; the passenger was also taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
