An East Franklin Township man jumped to safety from his burning vehicle the afternoon of May 28.

While traveling toward Tarrtown at about 1:30PM, Larry R. Montgomery of Adrian told East Franklin Township Police he saw flames coming from under the dash and exited the vehicle quickly.

The 2006 Jeep Wrangler four-door, however, was described as a ‘total loss’ and was removed from over an embankment by Morris Towing.

East Franklin, Applewold and Washington Township fire crews assisted at the scene.
