The car caught fire and the driver was pinned with what was descrived as "very serious injuries." 

 

A passerby was able to knock down the fire with a fire extinguisher. La Pine Fire crews pulled the driver out and finished putting out the fire.

 

The driver of the sedan was flown to St. Charles Bend. The pickup driver was taken to the hospital by Crescent Fire medics. Both highways were closed at the intersection for about an hour.
