ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Dougherty County coroner says an Albany man killed in a truck crash last week died from burns suffered when his pick up went up in flames.

36-year old Costanza Williams is the second fire fatality victim in Dougherty County so far this year.

Williams was killed February 12th when his pick up truck struck a pole in the 2400 block of Rosebrier Avenue and caught fire.

Coroner Michael Fowler says Williams was not wearing a seat belt and suffered broken bones in the crash.

"Looking at the truck, it looked like he might have hit the tree pretty hard, and the pole," said Fowler. "He was going a high rate of speed, definitely." But the fire was what killed him? "The fire was the cause of death."

The State Safety Fire Commissioner's office says 29 Georgians have died in fires so far this year.
