What happened in this horrific case?

A recent fiery crash on I-90 east may have been caused by a reckless driver, according to a witness. The incident happened on October 15 and led to the driver of a white sedan to be ejected from his car. I-90 was closed for nearly three hours as the car exploded into flames.

The man who was ejected ended up approximately 50 yards from his car in the middle of the highway. He was taken to MetroHealth Medical Center. According to police, the victim suffered from a facial fracture and tissue injuries.

One witness on the scene told police that the driver of a Dodge Ram had cut him off and was driving recklessly. Another witness provided the same information to police.
