CHESTER CITY, Pa. (YC) – A shooting victim managed to escape death twice in a matter of minutes after being shot and crawling out of his vehicle when it burst into flames Sunday morning.

The incident happened just after 2:40 a.m. when Chester City Police responded to reports of a shooting at 4th and Highland streets in Chester.

The victim was able to get in his car after being shot in an attempt to drive himself to the hospital, according to police.

Shortly after, he collapsed behind the wheel due to the gunshot wound.

The man then crashed his vehicle and managed to crawl out after it flipped over and burst into flames just two blocks from a Delaware County hospital.
