An antique vehicle crashed and burned Saturday near Burnt Prairie. A Sheriff’s Deputy was called to an area north of County Road 775 East just before 9am in reference to a burning vehicle. The Carmi Fire Department was also dispatched.
77 year old George Vines of Burnt Prairie told the deputy he had been driving the 1929 Ford Model A when the steering failed. The vehicle exited the roadway and traveled down an embankment before coming to rest in a tree line.
Arrangements have been made to have the vehicle removed.
