A 19-year-old man died in a fiery overnight crash on a Twin Cities highway.

The driver, from Woodbury, was in a 1994 Toyota Corolla, heading eastbound on Highway 36 in Roseville just after 2:30 a.m., according to the State Patrol. At Lexington Avenue, the driver went off the road, hit a guardrail and rolled onto its side, the crash report says.

When first responders arrived, they found the vehicle "heavily damaged" and "fully engulfed in flames."

Nobody else was involved in the crash. The State Patrol has not publicly identified the driver as of Tuesday morning.
