NASHUA – A Lowell, Mass., man died early Saturday morning when the car he was operating crashed and burst into flames on the F.E. Everett Turnpike, police said.

State police said Yan O. Denysenko, 23, was pronounced dead at the scene of the 4:17 a.m. accident. A state trooper and a Nashua police officer were able to pull Denysenko from the burning car, police said.

A representative of the state medical examiner’s office responded to the scene and pronounced Denysenko dead, police said.

State police said that based on witness statements and evidence gathered at the scene, they determined speed was a factor in the crash.

Nashua Fire Rescue Deputy Chief Karl Gerhard said an engine and tower truck were dispatched for a reported car fire in the northbound lanes between exits 5 and 6. While en route, crews were notified there was someone in the vehicle and an ambulance had been summoned to the scene.

He said crews quickly extinguished the fire. Debris from the badly damaged vehicle, which police described as a 2001 Ford P31 hatchback, covered most of the northbound lanes.

Police said traffic was detoured near Exit 5 for about two hours while investigators documented the scene.

Gerhard said a second vehicle appeared to have been involved in the accident, but nobody in that car was injured. He said firefighters encountered some problems with ice that formed in the road and on equipment.

Anyone with additional information is asked to call State Trooper J. Wood at 223-4381.
