One dead after fiery crash in Bradley County

Posted: Updated:

Bradley County EMS responded to a single car crash Thursday night just before 10 p.m. at the 34 mile marker northbound.

Bradley County EMS tell Channel 3 that a Toyota Camry left the roadway, struck a tree then burst into flames.

When emergency crews arrived on the scene the car was fully engulfed with flames so much that the fire was too hot for responders to approach.

Bradley County Fire and Rescue were able to subdue the fire and discovered that one adult male driver was the only occupant in the vehicle. That victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

"We thought we were going to make it through the Thanksgiving holiday without any traffic fatalities. The holiday season is so unpredictable, but historically it seems like we always respond to at least one bad accident," said Stan Clark, EMS spokesperson.
