HARRIS COUNTY, Texas -- A pickup truck driver died in a fiery crash in far northwest Harris County early Friday, deputies said.

According to the sheriff’s office, the accident happened around 12:35 a.m. in the 10900 block of W. Compaq Center Drive.

A man was traveling eastbound in a Chevrolet Avalanche when he missed a curve in the road and struck a tree. His pickup flipped onto its side and caught fire.

A passerby tried to kick out the truck’s rear window as the man screamed for help inside, but the flames quickly grew.

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene.
