SOUTHAVEN, MS (WMC) -

A charred truck body and a melted motorcycle could be seen from EXCLUSIVE Chopper 5 video Friday afternoon.

That's what was left behind after a crash on Star Landing Road near Marcia Louise Drive. Southaven police tell WMC Action News 5 both vehicles burst into flames after the crash, and it's not clear why.

It looks like they hit head on though, traveling in opposite directions before meeting in the fiery crash.

Emergency workers took the driver of the motorcycle to Baptist DeSoto Hospital, where he later died. The truck driver was not injured.

Neither person was injured in the fire.

No charges have been filed at this point.
