A driver died Monday afternoon after their vehicle crashed along Highway 36 and caught fire.
One person was inside the car, but authorities were unable to identify the individual because the wreckage was so badly damaged by fire. Because of the fire, authorities were only able to tell that the car was a Chrysler brand. They couldn't determine a model.
DPS investigators are currently locating dental records for missing persons in the area to help identify the driver, a spokesman told KTXS Tuesday.
According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, the driver was traveling north on Highway 36, about five miles south of the Abilene airport, when the car went off the road, ended up in a ditch, and then caught on fire.
It happened just after 5 p.m. Monday.
The body was taken to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner's Office for identification.
