The vehicle crashed into a home on the block and burst into flames with the driver still inside. The vehicle was so badly burned that officials couldn't immediately identify the make or model. 

The single-vehicle crash took place about 1:30 a.m. on the 17000 block of Woodingham, said Officer Jennifer Moreno, a Detroit Police Department spokeswoman. The area is south of McNichols and west of Livernois.

Police are investigating.
