Police say the driver of a truck carrying several occupants lost control and crashed into some rocks near 82-173 Farrington Highway just after midnight. The occupants all piled out of the truck and fled. Then, the truck burst into flames. When firefighters arrived to put the fire out, a body was discovered in the front seat. Police suspect speed and alcohol may be factors. They are looking for the driver of the truck.
