Posted: Updated:

LONDONDERRY, NH (FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) New Hampshire residents rushed to the aid of a man trapped inside of a burning Jeep on Saturday morning.

Londonderry Police say they arrived to the scene of a single-car crash on Mammoth Road to find a man named Earl Wickline trying to knock down flames coming from the car with an extinguisher he borrowed from a resident in the neighborhood. A woman named Apryl Norris was also helping at the scene.

Norris, Wickline, and three Londonderry police officers were able to free the male driver from the car. He was flown via medical helicopter to Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. The driver's condition is unknown at this time.

A dog was also inside the car at the time of the crash. The dog was transported to a nearby animal clinic where it was treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Investigators are looking into the cause of the crash. They say the driver was traveling south on Mammoth Road when he veered onto the northbound shoulder and into a tree.

Officials say the road was covered in a layer of snow, but it is currently unknown whether or not this was a factor in the crash.
