It happened just after midnight on Hume Road near Adena Lane.

Police say a Chevy pickup truck slammed into a tree and then burst into flames.

We’re told the driver was heading west when the truck went off the road and hit a guard rail.

The driver then over-corrected, and went head-on into the tree.

Police also tell us there was ammunition inside the truck, creating some “popping” noises because of the fire. No one was hurt as a result of those going off.

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene, but has not yet been identified.

Police say they believe speed was a factor in the crash.

Hume road was closed for around three hours while crews cleared the scene.
