A couple fortunately escaped from injuries after the Lexus they were in suddenly caught fire on the westbound 22 along South Glassell Street in Santa Ana.
Charles Lanning and his wife were traveling along the freeway when they noticed that the vehicle’s engine sounded different that the usual. Charles attempted to pull off the freeway, but ended up on the right shoulder of the Glassell on-ramp.
According to reports, they were able to get out of the car before it burst into flames.
Garden Grove and Santa Ana firefighters worked together just to put out the fire.
Charles should have made sure that the car’s engine is in a good condition before he traveled with his wife. It is a good thing that no one was injured in the incident. If Charles and his wife were unable to get out of the vehicle immediately, they might have sustained severe or fatal injuries in the fire.
