A fiery crash early Saturday morning in Merrimack, New Hampshire, sent one person to the hospital.

State Police said first responders arrived to the scene at 4:25 a.m., just south of exit 10, on the southbound side of the Everett Turnpike. That's where a Toyota Camry was found fully engulfed in flames.

Police said the driver, Dakota Willette, 23, of Burlington, Massachusetts, had been removed from the car with the assistance of motorists who had stopped to help.

First responders then took over and administered first aid. Willette was taken by medical helicopter to a Boston area hospital to be treated for injuries. The extent of those injuries are unknown.

A preliminary investigation indicates that Willette lost control of the car and struck some trees off the right side of the turnpike.

The exact cause of the crash, however, remains under investigation.
