Three People Injured After Car Bursts into Flames in Hurlock

Posted:

HURLOCK,Md.-Maryland State Police said that around 3:30 p.m. on Saturday afternoon three people were injured, one seriously after the parked car they were sitting in suddenly caught fire in the 6200 block of Mission Hill Road.
 
Fire marshals are currently investigating the circumstances of how the interior of a 2000 Pontiac, 2-door sedan suddenly burst into flames injuring the front seat passengers, 24-year-old Yashica Pinder, her brother, 26-year-old Aaron Pinder and 31-year-old Lakita Bolden who was in the back seat.  

Police said all three people were able to get out of the vehicle right before a propane tank in the trunk exploded causing the vehicle to be a near total loss with $2,500 in damages. 

The Pinder siblings were flown to shock trauma and later transferred to Bayview Burn Center Baltimore with burns and for smoke inhalation.

Police said Bolden was flown directly to the center with burns to an estimated 60 percent of her body. 

The Dorchester County Sheriff's Office and fifteen firefighters from the Hurlock Volunteer Fire Company responded to the scene and took approximately three minutes to bring the fire under control.
