Special to the Standard

EXETER – Taylor Flanagan, a volunteer firefighter with Station 4, was still awake at 3 a.m. on July 22 when the emergency radio crackled in his home: A car had flown 20 feet off dark and winding Mail Road, landing upside down in a ravine and catching fire.
Flanagan, who lives nearby, jumped into his truck and raced to the scene.
Meanwhile, in another home off Mail Road, Lt. Scott Gavitt and his son, Scott Jr., were asleep but they, too, quickly heeded the call.
First at the scene, Flanagan could see from the road that the car was ablaze.
