Two people are dead after a car veered off the road and crashed on Bellhaven Boulevard early Monday morning.

The crash happened around 3:30 a.m. when a man driving a green BMW veered off the road, caught fire, and collided into some trees.

Charlotte Mecklenburg Police were the first to arrive on the scene of the fiery crash.  Two officers attempted to free the driver from the car just as Fire Department officials arrived.

Both a 29-year-old man and a 36 year-old man were killed in the crash.  A passenger was rushed to Carolinas Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.
