Williamson County fire crews from Station 28 managed to reach the vehicle, from which the passengers had safely exited, before it became totally engulfed.

Upon salvage and overhaul of the car, the firefighters found a ring box containing an engagement ring that the driver had recently purchased for his girlfriend. Almost all other contents and the vehicle itself were destroyed.

The driver took this as a sign and made the decision to propose to his girlfriend on the spot, from a safe distance on the shoulder of the road.

She said yes, and now they are officially engaged.
