Authorities have identified one of the people who died when a car crashed into a house in Montgomery County, sparking a fire that destroyed the home.

The Montgomery County coroner identified that victim as 27-year-old Wayne Foulke. The other person in the car has not yet been identified.

It happened around 2:00 a.m. Tuesday on the 3100 block of Byberry Road in Upper Moreland Township.

A vehicle slammed into a nearby home, resulting in a fire. The flames quickly raged through the home, reducing it to what is now little more than charred rubble.

The Cummins family was inside but everyone - including two parents, three young boys and a dog - were able to make it out safely.

Officials say that the vehicle's gas tank ruptured when it slammed into the family's parked car and home. That ignited the fire which consumed both vehicles and spread into the house, leaving the home incinerated.

By the time it was towed away, the vehicle was reduced to a pile of twisted, melted metal.

Authorities later found the bodies of the two victims inside the car.
