State troopers are trying to determine who was driving an SUV that crashed and burned Wednesday morning.
Troopers say the accident happened around 4:30 a.m. on Mills Road, that's off Highway 43. They believe the driver may have been drunk and ran from the crash.
They searched what's left of the SUV and the surrounding woods for any sign of the driver.
Now troopers are looking for a vehicle identification number off the SUV to trace who it belongs to.
We're gathering information about a fiery car crash early Wednesday morning in Pitt county.
Highway Patrol Troopers say the vehicle is burned so badly, they can not determine the make of the vehicle--only that it's a SUV.
Another bizarre twist, the driver of that vehicle is no where to be found.
Troopers say it happened around 4:30 Wednesday morning, on Mills road, near Highway 43 at the Hollywood crossroads. Trooper S.P. Ziemba tells WITN the driver hit an embankment, flipped and landed upside down.
The SUV then burst into flames.
Once fire crews from Eastern Pines Fire Department put out the flames, they found no one inside.
