According to the Georgia State Patrol, witnesses said no one exited the Toyota van after the crash. The cause of the wreck has not been determined.
Bartow County Fire Department said the vehicle was fully involved upon arrival of stations 4, 6 and 1. Officials closed the road for a length of time, and surrounding woods also were scorched from the fire, according to GSP.
The driver could not be identified at the scene due to burns. Bartow County Coroner Joel Guyton said an ID had not been determined, and officials expect the results of dental records today.
Arson suspected in vacant home fire
Officials suspect foul play in a blaze that partially damaged a vacant residence on Dean Street.
According to BCFD, firefighters were dispatched just after 10:30 a.m. Monday to 113 Dean St. where a mobile home for rent had smoke showing from a rear window. It appeared the fire started in a bedroom after someone soaked rags in an accelerant and ignited them.
The battalion chief at the scene told a Bartow County Sheriff's deputy that it appeared the suspect attempted to burn the back porch as well.
BCFD said Tuesday the home was not a total loss and the case was turned over to the fire marshal.
