Does anyone know what happened this morning. There was a terrible accident with a truck on fire. Did the people survive?

My husband was one of guys that was able to pull two people out of the truck before it burnt up. Unfortunately, the driver was trapped and they were unable to free him so he did not survive. The two that were pulled from the truck were alive when the ambulances took them away, but we have no idea how serious their injuries were and are hoping to find out if they make it. We were in the market when it happened so we did not see it--only heard the crash and the explosion. It appears that the truck pulled out of a side street right into the path of the oncoming SUV.

Thank you for letting me know.

I think we must have come upon it just minutes after it happened. I haven't been able to get it out of my head and I have been feeling rather sad. I wish the news would update us on the condition of the two that were pulled out. I would like to see something positive come out of the whole tragedy. Thank goodnes for your husband and the other guy that helped the passengers.

Did the driver appear to be conscience when he was trapped? The last I heard is that the girl passenger is in bad shape, some head injuries and internal injuries. Nothing has been released for this accident yet. The driver was a friend of mine. His funeral will be this saturday in stephens city va. Such a shame 24 years old.

A representative from the fire department called us last night and said that all indications were that the driver died upon impact. He also said that both passengers were pretty seriously injured. We're hoping and praying that they both pull through. We're very sorry for the loss of your friend. My husband has been very upset that they were not able to get him out. He definitely was not conscious though, and as I said the fire fighters believe he was dead before the fire got to him. They told us they would keep us updated on the progress of the other two so if I get any more information, I will post it here.

Thank you very much. Its sad that someone so young dies in something we all take for granted. This should be a reminder to wear seat belts and pay attention. Your husband is a hero for doing what he did. He saved two lives that day. Make sure he remembers that.

tell you husband thank you for me. my fiance was one of the people in this accident and the only reason he survived was because of people like your husband. both of the survivors are making a recovery but it is going to be a long road.

Thanks for the update Megan. We are so happy to hear that the survivors are recovering. My husband still thinks about the accident and has wondered how they were doing. We did give our contact information to the police at the scene and asked to be kept updated, but we never heard anything. Please know that both of them are in our thoughts and prayer. We would really appreciate it if you would continue to keep us updated our their condition.

You are very welcome. No, we didn't see the article. We live in Purcellville so we don't get the Winchester newspapers. I'm glad I found this board as it's made us very happy to hear that your fiance and his friend are recovering.
