Man Pulled From Burning Car Listed In Good Condition


A driver is recovering at UK Hospital Saturday after a fiery crash in Lexington, after neighbors pulled Charles Kelly from his burning car.

Hospital officials say Kelley is recovering from his injuries and is now listed in good condition. Witnesses say the man slumped over at the wheel, slammed into the back of one truck, and then hit another. That's when the car caught fire and neighbors came running.

"The car was on fire. My first thought was to get the man out. I figured he was going to burn if we didn't help," said Kim Adams.

Two men came to help Adams pull the driver from the fire.

Another man, working on his truck, was injured when the crash caused a car jack to hit him in the arm.
