According to an eyewitness report, this vehicle caught fire after veering off the eastbound Trans-Canada Highway near Birchy Lake en route to Baie Verte, travelling about 100 yards in the ditch before becoming airbourne after hitting a mound of dirt and coming down on its front. The witness said Royal Canadian Mounted Police and firefighters arrived on the scene after the male driver had already escaped from the vehicle seemingly unharmed.
