One person is dead after a car crashed into a house and caught fire early Sunday morning on Westbrook Road in Perry Twp.

Kenson Bell, 24 of Brookville, was identified as the deceased by the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office. Bell suffered severe trauma and died at a local hospital.

The crash was reported at 2:29 a.m. and within six minutes crews arrived on scene, said Brookville Fire Chief Ron Fletcher.

“We expected to find a car inside of a home on fire, but what actually happened was that the vehicle went airborne and landed on the roof of the porch of the home and collapsed the porch as well as went rolling out through the side yard,” Fletcher said. “The vehicle was completely destroyed and there was an after fire, but it did not involve the passenger compartment of the vehicle. Fire crews arrived and we extinguished the fire.”

The cause of the crash may have involved speed, Fletcher said.
