WHITLEY COUNTY — The Whitley County Sheriff’s Department is attempting to identify the body of a person found in a wrecked, burning car at Old U.S. 30 and County Line Road at about 3:15 a.m. Monday.

Police were called to the scene on reports of a vehicle on fire. Officials found a body inside, however, have not yet been able to identify the driver because the vehicle was heavily damaged in the crash. Officials say the license plate and VIN numbers are not visible.

The vehicle appeared to hit a tree in a ditch, reports say.
