Police say a man was burned beyond recognition after his car crashed into a Massachusetts Turnpike overpass and burst into flames.
Palmer police told The Republican newspaper that the crash occurred just before 4 a.m. Saturday on Boston Road near the intersection with Route 67. Authorities say the car was fully engulfed in flames when they arrived.
The man was identified Wednesday as 32-year-old Glen Gilmore of Monson. The medical examiner's office has taken custody of his body and is trying to confirm his identity.
No one else was in the car.
The cause of the crash is under investigation.
