MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Multiple ambulances and rescue crews were called to the Hyde Park area after a head-on collision during rush hour Tuesday morning.
The accident happened at the intersection of National and Buchanan.
Witnesses told WREG's Melissa Moon they rushed to help the victims as one of the cars caught on fire. They were able to pull a male driver from the wreckage and revive him on the scene using CPR.
A four-year-old in the second vehicle was also rescued. The child appeared to be okay, witnesses said, but they were unable to get the baby's mother out.
When our crew arrived on the scene, fire fighters were still trying to cut her from the wreckage.
Both drivers were taken to the Regional Medical Center in critical condition, but the man later died from his injuries, Memphis police said. The child was taken to Le Bonheur Children's Hospital and is expected to be okay.
