DALLAS - A vehicle burst into flames after the driver lost control, ultimately slamming into a pole off North Central Expressway near Lemmon Avenue in Dallas.

Two people inside the vehicle were killed in the fiery crash. Two others were pulled from the vehicle and taken to nearby hospitals for treatment. Their conditions are not known.

Witnesses at the scene attempted to pull the last two victims from the vehicle but said the flames were too strong.

Authorities said the driver lost control while on the northbound Central Expressway service road, driving through a fence and slamming into a power line pole around 1:30 a.m. Friday.

Power was knocked out to two nearby apartment complexes.

Nobody has been identified.
