The Boston Fire Department reported that the fire was on westbound I-90 right before the toll exit. Fire department officials said the car collided with a roadside sign, though it is unknown if the collision is the cause of the fire.

Firefighters arrived at the scene around 3:45 p.m. The fire was put out, but not before the flames engulfed nearly the entire car. The condition of the driver is unknown, as is the cause of the collision.
