Car Fire at Cadman Plaza

Josh Derr writes on Flickr: This car hit the guards at the Cadman plaza exit and burst into flames. It happened around 5:00pm today just as I was getting ready to leave the office. I have two questions:
1) What happened? (I didn't see any other vehicles involved in the accident, though it looked like several cars stopped.)
2) How in the world does a PT Cruiser burst into flames from hitting a safety barrier?!?!

    Not entirely sure what happened but there were flames and a lot of smoke. That’s me in the gray car driving by, getting out of there just in time!
