One person was killed and two injured in a fiery crash in Atascadero on Sunday.

Shortly after 2 p.m., a car crashed on the northbound on-ramp at Del Rio Road; flipped onto its roof and burst into flames. One person died at the scene, and two others were injured.

The fully engulfed vehicle started a vegetation fire, that firefighters quickly extinguished.

As more information becomes available, CalCoastNews will update the article.
