Traffic investigators say an unknown passerby pulled an Osborn woman from her burning vehicle after a wreck in Dekalb County Sunday.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports Keshia Youtsey, 20, lost control of her Grand Prix along U.S. 36 highway at Baker Road shortly after 6:30 p.m. Sunday.

The vehicle skidded off the roadway and overturned as the engine compartment caught fire.

Officials say Youtsey was pulled from the vehicle by an unknown passerby. She suffered serious injuries and was transported by ambulance to Cameron Regional Medical Center.
