Fatal car fire in WA

A driver has died after their car veered off a West Australian road and set the surrounding bush alight.

Police say flames engulfed the car, which was travelling at low speed before it came to rest in bush in Northern Gully on Saturday afternoon.

They have yet to identify the driver, who died at the scene.

The death is not included in the Easter road toll because it happened on the side of the road, a police spokesman told AAP on Sunday.
