      Ft. Madison (IA) -- A 17-year-old Wever youth escaped severe injury when he was thrown from his pickup shortly before it burst into flame.

      Ralph H. Blanchard was taken to Ft. Madison community hospital after the 4:14 a.m. accident Sunday. He was later transferred to Burlington Medical Center where he was reported in good condition Monday.

      According to Lee county sheriff Bud Arnold, Blanchard was driving north on US 61 about 5 miles north of here when the truck went out of control and skidded into the east ditch. The truck skidded for 120 feet, and was airborne for another 130 feet before it struck some trees and burst into flame. Arnold said deputies found Blanchard about 40 feet away from the truck when they arrived.

      "And it's a good thing he got thrown, because he would have burned with the truck," Arnold said. Blanchard suffered a fractured ankle and lacerations in the accident.
