DENISON, Texas -- A motorist who was seriously injured after his car collided head-on with another vehicle on a Denison highway Wednesday afternoon has died.

Investigators said 26-year-old Bryant Granger of Bonham was traveling on FM 84 near the intersection of State Highway 91 when an oncoming car crossed into his lane.

Granger's car burst into flames after the impact. Witness Jason Hagan stopped to help.

"This one was fully engulfed," he said. "There wasn't anybody here, so I got out, took my shirt off, started beating the flames down, you know, trying to keep them away from the driver...  tell him to stay awake, stay awake... he was unconscious."

Granger was extracted from the wreckage but died later at a nearby hospital.

Keri Benedict of Sherman, 30, was driving the other car. She was not hurt. State troopers have not yet determined if she will be charged in connection with the fatal crash.
