A man who died Saturday when his sedan burst into flames after hitting another vehicle head-on has been identified.
Christopher Evans, 29, of Bonney Lake was killed in the crash on Nisqually Road, just east of Interstate 5 and south of DuPont. His dog also died.
Officials said they are unsure why Evans’ sedan burst into flames after it crossed the center line and hit a Chevrolet Tahoe traveling east.
Fire spread to the Tahoe, but two people inside the SUV were able to get out.
Evans and his dog were trapped inside.
