Authorities in Hamilton have released few details on Sunday about a Flamborough vehicle fire that killed one person.
Around 1:40 a.m., crews responded to a call about a pickup truck that had caught fire after a "single-vehicle accident" on Centre Road near Concession 8, said Claudio Mostacci, a spokesperson with the Hamilton Fire Department.
EMS officials arrived a short time later to attend to the truck's only occupant, but the rescue was called off after it was determined the victim had died.
The Hamilton Police Service's collision reconstruction unit is handling the investigation into the crash.
Early Sunday afternoon, police would not comment on the nature of the collision, nor did they release any information about the victim.
Hamilton police are also probing the death of a man who was found after a single-vehicle collision last week near the city's northwestern border.
On Wednesday, a vehicle going eastbound on Regional Road 97 near Cooper Road drifted into the westbound lane and then into a ditch, before crashing into a tree.
Emergency crews found the driver, a 61-year-old from Cambridge, without vital signs. They then took him to hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
