NORTH CANTON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – Fire that destroyed an SUV and killed the unidentified driver in North Canton early Wednesday was intense.

So, part of the investigation involves identifying the vehicle.

Police Chief Frank Kemp says it appears there were no license plates on the vehicle, and even the VIN plate on the dashboard is missing.

They think it may have been a red or maroon older-model Ford Escape.

The vehicle went off the left side of Elberta Avenue SW south of Everhard Road, hitting a large tree and catching fire.

Chief Kemp says there is a curve along Elberta, but the accident happened north of there
