Fire crews rescued a driver after he was trapped inside a burning car at 43rd and Glendale avenues. 

According to the Phoenix Fire Department, two vehicles collided, and four people were taken to a hospital for treatment. 

A sports car, operated by a man, caught on fire during the collision and the man was trapped. Fire crews were able to extinguish the fire and rescue the man. He was taken to a trauma center with multiple serious injuries.
