Three Hospitalized After Fiery Crash in Hartford

Three people were hospitalized after a fiery car crash in Hartford close to midnight Friday into Saturday.

A car that was sideswiped crashed into a fire hydrant pole as a result and burst into flames at the intersection of Nelson and Main streets in the capital city, police said. Officers responded at 11:47 p.m. on Friday night.

Ambulances transported three people to an area hospital to be treated for minor injuries. The vehicle had extensive front end damage, police said.

Video submitted by viewer Pedro Rivera shows firefighters spraying water  onto large flames engulfing the car to put out the blaze.

It is unknown whether the people in the car got out before the fire started.
