TURNER —  An early-morning car crash killed one person, according to the Androscoggin County Sheriff's Department.

An officer arriving at the corner of Center Bridge Road and Back Cove discovered a car engulfed in flames and the remains of a person inside.

That person has been tentatively identified, but the department is working with the Maine State Medical Examiner's Office to confirm that identity.

No other vehicles were involved in the accident, which remains under investigation. State Police are assisting with reconstruction of the crash.
