LANSING — Police pulled one woman from a car just before it burst into flames, and emergency workers rescued two others after a wreck early Monday at Torrence Avenue and 173rd Street.*
The three women injured in the two-car crash about 3 a.m. were all taken to local hospitals for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries, Lansing police said.
The first officers to arrive at the scene found a 2002 Ford Taurus on fire and a 2008 Chevrolet Equinox rolled onto its passenger side.
Officers pulled the Taurus' 26-year-old driver out of the passenger side of the SUV just before it became engulfed, police said. A 25-year-old passenger had been ejected and was found nearby.
Lansing firefighters put out the fire and extricated a 36-year-old woman, who was trapped inside the Equinox.
The cause of the crash remained under investigation, police said.
