JUPITER, Fla. — Police said one person is dead after an early morning car fire at Indiantown Road and Alternate A1A.

The car was left unrecognizable Friday after it was split in half and went up in flames.

The investigation is ongoing, but officials said the car was likely traveling westbound on Indiantown Road when the driver lost control and veered off the road. The car was split in half by electricity poles.

Two westbound lanes were closed on Indiantown Road near Alternate A1A as of 7 a.m.
