A deadly crash occurred on Highway 116 in Briceville, also known as "The New River Highway," Monday afternoon.
Officials said a car went off the road and down an embankment.
The driver, John Roberts, 41, of Lake City, was the only passenger in the vehicle, and authorities said the driver died in the accident.
A witness, while driving, spotted the wreck because the car was on fire.
The road is expected to be closed until 9 p.m. Monday so crews can work on getting the car back up to the road.
