One person died in a fiery crash on U.S. 380

One person died in a fiery crash on U.S. 380 east of Decatur just before 8 p.m. last night.

A passenger car was traveling westbound on 380 when it left the roadway to the north and ran through a fence. He said it appears the car then veered back through the fence to the south and then went through the fence again to the north.

The Wise County Messenger says the car hit the edge of a ravine, went airborne, slammed into a tree and burst into flames. The car was destroyed, and it was impossible to visually determine if the driver was male or female. There were no passengers in the car. The crash occurred about a quarter mile away from where the vehicle first left the roadway.
