A 23-year-old man is dead following a fiery crash in Breaux Bridge. 

The crash claimed the life of Devan Durand of St. Martinville.

At approximately 12:40 a.m. this morning, St. Martin Parish Sheriff's  deputies responded to a single-vehicle crash in the 2500 block of Doyle Melancon Road in Breaux Bridge.

Upon arrival, deputies found a vehicle fully engulfed in flames.

A spokeswoman for the sheriff's office says investigation revealed Durand was traveling south on Doyle Melancon Road when he failed to negotiate a curve at the intersection of Clayton Castille Road. He then struck a tree, which caused the vehicle to ignite, according to the spokeswoman.

Durand was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Deputies consider speed and heavy fog to be factors in the crash, and alcohol does not appear to be a factor at this time. 

The Breaux Bridge Fire Department also responded to the scene of the crash and extinguished the flames.
