DIGHTON, Mass. (AP) — Police say slippery roads appear to be a factor in a fatal car crash in Dighton.

Police tell The Taunton Daily Gazette (http://bit.ly/1fDZboE ) it was snowing late Monday morning when a car driven by an 82-year-old local man went off the road, struck a tree and burst into flames.

The victim's name was not immediately made public pending notification of family.

No other vehicles were involved and the crash remains under investigation.
