TAMPA, FL – It is unknown if a 25-year-old driver sustained injuries in a single-vehicle crash early Saturday morning on a busy roadway in Tampa, reports WFLA News 8.
Police say the incident happened at 2:40 a.m. in the Hyde Park area near the Platt Street overpass of the Selmon Expressway.

Authorities say the driver was able to exit the vehicle before the fire started, but it is unknown if he was hurt.
A full investigation is underway.
