A driver was able to escape a car that tumbled into a ravine, and then burned, after a single car accident on Christmas Eve in Bloomington, Indiana. Scanner traffic indicated the vehicle was a Ford Focus. Skid marks on the road showed where the car went off the road, hit a tree, before tumbling into a ravine. According to scanner traffic, the driver of the car had escaped the vehicle, which caught on fire. Two wreckers later arrived at the scene to winch the car out of the ravine where it still smoldered from the heat of the fire. This story will be updated if more information becomes available.
