Flaming runaway Jeep crashes into car downtown

AUSTIN (KXAN) — It is video you have to see to believe: a car on fire rolling through Downtown Austin.

A Jeep backfired and caught fire at the corner of Guadalupe and Sixth Streets, according to Sam M., who shot the video as he left work.

Eventually, the driver jumped out, but the Jeep kept rolling … through intersections at Fifth and Fourth streets before the Jeep hit a BMW at the corner of Third and Guadalupe streets as the driver chased after his runaway car.

Luckily, no one was hurt.
