Two people escaped from an overturned, burning car after it crashed off the street and into the woods in Potomac on Saturday night, according to a Montgomery County Fire & Rescue Service (MCFRS) spokesman.

Both people were taken to a local hospital with injuries that were serious but not considered life-threatening, MCFRS spokesman Pete Piringer said. A firefighter was also injured at the scene.

The car crashed off South Glen Road at a curve near Deep Glen Drive at about 8:15 p.m., according to Piringer. The car caught on fire after it rolled over. No other cars were involved.

Over the weekend, MCFRS also responded to several other crashes in the area. A vehicle went over the guard rail on the Beltway near Clara Barton Parkway in Bethesda at about midnight Saturday; no one was injured, according to Piringer. At about 1:50 a.m. Sunday, a vehicle and a small school bus collided on the Beltway between Georgia and Connecticut avenues. The vehicle went over the guard rail and into the woods, and there was one nonlife-threatening injury.
