One person died Friday in a fiery van crash on Laurel Cliff Road, Pomeroy firefighters say.

The accident was reported just after 4:45 p.m. in Salisbury Township.

Firefighters say the cargo van left the roadway, went through a fence and caught fire. It came to rest along an embankment.

Crews put the fire out, and the victim was extricated from the wreckage.

Firefighters say there’s a possibility that the victim had a medical issue that led up to the crash.

The person’s name has not been released yet. The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating the accident.
