The North Carolina Highway Patrol says one person is dead following a three-car accident early Saturday morning in Nash County.

Troopers say a car driven by Edgar Sanchez, 27,was traveling east on U.S. 264 when it ran into the back of a truck around 4:48 a.m. on Saturday.

The truck then ran off the road and left the scene via N.C. 581. Meanwhile, the car overturned and the front wheel well of the vehicle caught fire.

When a FedEx truck stopped to call 911, a tractor trailer moved to pass the FedEx truck and hit the overturned car.

The identities of the other drivers were not made immediately available.

It is not known why the truck left the scene of the accident.
