LEWISVILLE, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) -Lewisville police have yet to identify a driver who was killed in a high-speed and fire collision in a concrete pillar late Tuesday night, October 12th.
Police said the vehicle crashed into the 2600 block of I-35E NB (near 121 highway) around 10:30 p.m.
Witnesses told investigators that the two-door black car “was driving about 100 miles per hour in the left lane as it inexplicably swerved to the right, crossed several lanes, left the highway and drove about 250 feet before hitting a concrete pillar.”
The impact with the column caused the car to turn on its side, burst into flames and slide down the street, police said.
When officers arrived at the scene shortly after, the car was completely engulfed.
Lewisville firefighters extinguished the fire.
There was only one person in the car, a man who was pronounced dead at the scene.
The impact of the crash and the fire make it difficult for investigators to determine which car it was, police said.
Due to the fire, the driver has not been identified either.
It is not known why the car was driving at a high speed.
No police authority was in pursuit of the vehicle, police said.
