A Plainville Police officer and two civilians pulled a Southington woman out of a burning car near I-84 in Plainville this morning.  State Police say her Chrysler Sebring collided with another vehicle. The other vehicle left the scene of the crash on the eastbound side of the highway, near exit 33.

Captain Brian Mullins says Officer Brian Cybuksi found the vehicle in a ditch.

“Officer Cybulski approached the vehicle, and with the assistance of two citizens who had also stopped, he broke a window and was able to extricate the driver of the car by pulling her through the window,” Mullins said.

State Police say 54-year-old Maureen Jahne suffered burns to her arms, back, and rear, and laceration on her arm.

She was taken to the hospital.  State Police are investigating the crash.

State Police are looking for the other car.  They say the case is under investigation, and they ask anyone who saw the collision to call Troop H at (860) 534-1000.
