Man, boy rescued from fiery crash in southern Illinois

ALTON, Ill. (AP) — A man and a juvenile are hospitalized after being rescued from a car that slammed into a light pole in southern Illinois and burst into flames. Alton police Capt. Scott Golike says it’s “pretty clear” that speed was a factor in Thursday’s crash. The victims were treated at the scene and taken to area hospitals before being flown by helicopter to St. Louis for treatment. Their conditions were not immediately available.
