BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - Authorities have released the name of a 19-year-old man who died in a fiery motorcycle crash in Billings.

The Billings Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/29Q0pyv ) that the victim of the Sunday crash has been identified as Brandon Engellant, of Billings. The Yellowstone County Coroner’s Office says he died of blunt force trauma.

Police Sgt. Shane Winden says Engellant had been riding a sport bike when he hit a curb and slid across the oncoming lane of traffic before striking a guardrail. The motorcycle’s fuel tank ruptured, starting a fire.

Winden says the rider was burned and died at the scene.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
