Car vs. Guard Rail (with fire)

The Ford Mustang appears to have run off the left side of the road in a slight curve and hit the guard rail, and the vehicle caught on fire.  The patient was able to extricate himself from the vehicle.  The units had some difficulty getting to the fire under the hood due to the accident.  Once the engine department was opened, the fire was quickly extinguished.
