Officials said they're working to identify a driver killed in a fiery crash in McMinn County late Sunday night.

State troopers said the driver lost control while turning left on Old Mecca Pike in Etowah, slid off the road, hit two trees, and caught on fire.

Authorities said by the time troopers arrived at the scene shortly before 11 a.m., the car was fully engulfed.

Crews took the body, which was burned beyond recognition, to the University of Tennessee Medical Center to perform an autopsy and determine the body's identity.
