Deputies: Body found in crashed car

An Albuquerque, New Mexico man died in a car crash Saturday in Graves County when the car he was driving hit a tree and caught fire.

Graves County deputies say Anacleto Montez-Oronia, 36, was driving south on Central Road around 4:15pm when his car crossed the northbound lane, left the road and hit a tree.  A witness who came up on the crash tried to see if someone was inside, but was forced back because of the heat.

No one else was hurt.
