An early morning car crash in Yigo ends with an SUV colliding into a concrete pole before catching fire. The driver lost control of the car before it occurred. He miraculously made it out unharmed.

First responders were called to the scene of the crash around 7 o'clock Wednesday morning.

It happened along route 15 - the back road to Andersen Air Force Base - near the Yigo raceway park.

Drivers passing by capturing images of burning SUV.

It caused traffic delays for some time, as authorities worked to clear the scene. GPA crews also responded to shut off electricity to the power lines. Crews then began making repairs after the car was towed away.

Police are investigating the cause, but again, no injuries were reported.
