The crash happened just before 4 a.m. at the intersection of Deans Bridge Road and Gordon Highway.

Investigators say Quimbly was driving westbound on the 1600 block of Gordon Highway when he drove into the median, hitting a road sign and then a metal utility pole, causing the front end of the car to catch fire.

An autopsy will not be conducted.
