Couple safe after fiery car crash in Yamhill County

Posted: Updated:
YAMHILL COUNTY, OR (KPTV) -

Paul Dolan, 80, and his wife, 81, are doing okay after their car flipped and caught on fire with the two still inside on Thursday.

While swerving to avoid a car, they crossed Highway 18 between Willamina and Sheridan, went down a 25 foot embankment and flipped the car.

Five men worked together to break the car's window and help get the couple get out in time.

Police said that Paul and his wife had just minor injuries, and the situation could have been much worse if they hadn't been able to escape the fire when they did.

Both are now home and recovering.
