UNION, KY (FOX19) -

One man is dead following a fiery Boone County crash that happened late Wednesday evening.

19-year-old Noah Ramon was driving a Honda Accord on U.S. 42 when he lost control while rounding the curve at New Haven School Road. He then crossed into the oncoming path of Toyota Camry driven by 34-year-old Arnulfo Espinoza-Romero, according to Boone County police.

The impact caused Ramon's car to strike a tree and become engulfed in flames.

Ramon, who authorities say was not wearing a seatbelt, was pronounced dead at the scene. Espinoza-Romero's leg was injured.

The Boone County Sheriff's Office said they are continuing to investigate the crash.
