The Terrifying Moment A Car Violently Crashes And Bursts Into Flames

The moment a Jeep was travelling down an icy road and crashed into a tractor-trailer has been caught on camera. 

The Jeep was travelling down Route 101 near Dublin, New Hampshire, USA when it spun out of control and collided with the oncoming tractor-trailer.

This caused the fuel tanker of the tractor to ignite.

The trailer and the car were immediately and violently engulfed by a ferocious ball of flame.

The terrifying moment was caught on another car's dash-cam, which was travelling behind the Jeep at the time of the crash. Unable to slow down in time, the car slid into the chaos.

Marc and John Cramer were in the behind the Jeep and had their dashcam rolling.

“I don’t remember even braking actually,” Marc Cramer told 7 News Boston.

“Looking back on it, it was a blessing because it knocked the Jeep out of the fire.

The Cramers managed to escape their vehicle and flag down another witness, who worked to free the drivers from both the Jeep and the trailer.

“We had some training in Colorado before we came out here, wilderness and first aid,” Marc Cramer said.

“We put him on his side immediately, and John was holding his neck the whole time."

The two men managed to support the 18-year-old Jeep driver until emergency services arrived at the scene.

The young driver was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital where he is receiving treatment for his injuries.
