November 3, 2016

car-fire-1On Wednesday, November 2, 2016 at approximately 7:00 p.m., firefighters from from Bay District Volunteer Fire Department were alerted to report of a vehicle fire in the 21000 block of Castaway Circle in Lexington Park.

Crews arrived on scene to discover a Nissan Altima fully engulfed in flames in the backyard of a residence on Sundew Place, off of Baywoods Road, in Lexington Park.

Fire crews worked quickly to extinguish the blaze.

Early reports from the scene indicate a female was driving a Nissan Altima on Baywoods Road when she lost control for unknown reasons, and her vehicle left the roadway, the car continued on striking a fence of a home on Sundew Place. The car then went into the backyard and through another fence, before coming to rest in a wooded area behind the house. The Nissan caught fire with the female driver unconscious and still inside the vehicle. Francis Goldring, 36 of Lexington Park, was in the area and ran to the crash scene. While the car was on fire, Goldring and another man were able to open the driver door of the Nissan and pull the woman from the burning car, Goldring said  “she woke up and started to fight me, telling me to get off her, she didn’t know her car was on fire”. Goldring and the other man were able to pull the woman from the vehicle and get her to a safe area before the car became fully engulfed in fire.

The woman was taken to MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital, to be checked out.

    don’t even try to tell me she wasn’t drunk, if she wanted to fight just let her burn. if someone doesn’t want to be saved to hell with them

      You aren’t worth saving. Everyone always has something smart to say but don’t even know what’s going on. Go get a job and do something with yourself

      Patrick,

      What is it like to go through life with a black heart?

      Thank you Mr. Goldring for having the courage to act and save someone’s life!

      Patrick, she was probably in shock with head injury. Those two things alone will make patients fight. They have no control. Drunk or not, she was saved not only by the bystander and another man, but also by our first responders!

      Idiot. She was unconscious and came to while he was pulling her out. She didn’t know what was happening.

    It wasn’t too long ago when I read about police officers pulling a family from a car on fire in Waldorf.
    They were heroes! These two men, are heroes too!

    Kudos for putting yourselves in danger to help someone else.
