Ohio man dies after getting trapped in burning car

SHARONVILLE, Ohio -- A 48-year-old man died Wednesday after the car he was in exploded and caught fire, trapping him inside as his mother and other onlookers were unable to save him, reports say.

"He was kicking the door -- he just couldn't get out," Colonial Gardens Apartments property manager Jamie Davidson tells WCPO Channel 9.

Davidson tells WCPO that she and other residents tried to help the man but were unable to get close to the car because the flames were too intense.

"You saw everything, you heard the popping of the car," witness Terri Tate tells WXIX Channel 19. "It sounded like gunfire, like multiple times. I saw a gentleman trying to, like going into the car and tried to save him, and they weren't able to save him.

"It was just too bad ... the fire was just engulfed."

Davidson tells WCPO that onlookers had to hold the victim's mother back as the car went up in flames.

It's unknown what caused the car to catch fire. The incident remains under investigation.
