A woman in her mid-20s died early Sunday in a fiery one-vehicle crash in Ligonier Township.

Westmoreland County Coroner Ken Bacha said investigators will identify the woman through dental records. The crash happened just after 3 a.m. along Route 711. Deputy Coroner Sean Hribal pronounced the woman dead at the scene at 4:15 a.m.

The woman apparently drifted off the road and hit an oak tree, causing the vehicle to catch fire, Bacha said. It came to rest against a home at on Route 711. The victim was the vehicle's only occupant, he said.

“There was very little, if any, damage to the house,” Bacha said.
