TONGANOXIE, Kan. (AP) - Police say a male driver was found dead inside a burning pickup truck in Leavenworth County.

Tongonoxie officials said witnesses reported two vehicles were speeding down a county road early Thursday when the truck driver lost control and it slammed into concrete highway pillars. The truck burst into flames and the man was dead when emergency crews arrived.

The second car left the scene. Police do not have a description and are asking the public for help locating the driver.

The man was from Tonganoxie but his name has not been released.
