Associated Press Release
FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities are investigating after four people were gravely injured in a fiery crash in Fort Myers.
Lee County Sheriff's deputies say a vehicle carrying four people was speeding before it crashed into a concrete wall at a church and burst into flames.
A Good Samaritan was able to pull one of the victims out of the burning vehicle, but authorities say the driver and two other passengers were trapped.
The car was so badly damaged in the crash that it made it difficult to rescue them. Authorities eventually rescued all of the victims, but one was trapped for about an hour. All the victims were transported to area hospitals.
The fiery crash closed part of a busy highway for four hours.
The victims were not identified. Traffic homicide detectives are investigating.
