A crash near Smyrna claims the life of a young Clayton man.

Delaware State Police say 18-year-old Justin Fields of Clayton was driving westbound on Hillyard Road west of Brenford Road Tuesday morning when he lost control on a curve.

The car struck a tree and caught fire.

Two people came by and pulled Fields from the car before it was fully engulfed in flames.

Troopers say Fields died while being taken to Kent General Hospital.

He was the only person in the vehicle, and State Police say Fields was not buckled up.

The accident and investigation closed Hillyard Road in the area for about three hours.
