Three people were pulled from a vehicle just before it caught fire after crashing in Camden County.

The crash happened around 1:15 a.m. Saturday on Route 130 in Pennsauken.

A 20-year-old man, a 19-year-old woman, and an 18-year-old woman, were inside the car travelling south on Route 130 when the driver lost control of the vehicle.

The car plowed into a traffic light control box and concrete barrier, flipping end-over-end before crashing through a wrought iron fence around the Crescent Memorial Cemetery.

Passing motorists rushed into the cemetery and pulled the victims from the vehicle right before the car burst into flames.

All three were taken to Cooper University Hospital. One of the women is in critical condition. The other woman and the man are both in stable condition.

The crash is under investigation.
