Our television partner KYMA-TV says the Somerton/Cocopah Fire Department responded to a call about a vehicle crash into a utility pole.
When responders arrived they saw a black Nissan 350Z fully engulfed in flames and a passenger on the opposite side of the road with severe burns.
The driver, 20-year-old Francisco Garcia Junior was pronounced dead at the scene.
Medics flew the 19-year-old surviving victim to a burn center in Phoenix with second and third degree burns covering 70-percent of his body.
His name is being withheld at this time. Authorities believe alcohol is a factor.
