    is this sentence ok?

    hi,

    which sentence is the best (if there's any...)?

    when the cars collided, they were engulfed in a ball of fire
    when the cars collided, they were enveloped in a ball of fire
    when the cars collided, they were involved in a ball of fire

    thanks a lot,
    jc

    Re: is this sentence ok?

    "Engulfed" is the best choice here.
    "Enveloped" would also be correct, but a native speaker is less likely to use this word.
    "Involved" would be wrong.
