GREENWICH — An unidentified driver was killed Monday after a crash caused the vehicle to go off an embankment and burst into flames.

The state Highway Patrol’s Norwalk Post was called to investigate the one-vehicle crash, which took place at about 4:30 p.m. on Townline Road 187, west of Greenwich East Townline Road. 

A Ford F-150 was eastbound on Townline Road 187 when the driver lost control of the truck and traveled down an embankment off the south side of the roadway, troopers said. The truck became engulfed in flames, killing the unknown driver. 

Due to the severity of the damage caused by the fire, a positive identification of the driver has not been made, nor could it be determined if the driver was a man or a woman, troopers said.

Troopers are being assisted by the Huron County Sheriff’s Officer and the State Fire Marshall. According to troopers, all three agencies were still on the scene at 10:33 a.m. Tuesday, actively investigating the crash.

No other information was available at publishing time.
