BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Baton Rouge Police continue to investigate a deadly crash that killed 20-year-old Eric Fabre Friday, and they believe they have found the vehicle that caused the crash. However, the vehicle has been burned beyond recognition.

Fabre was riding his motorized scooter when police say a red or maroon colored Chrysler 300 rear ended the scooter. Fabre did not survive the crash.

The Baton Rouge Police Department said it happened on Airline Highway at Old Hammond Highway in Baton Rouge, which is right by the Hammond Aire Shopping Center, just before 1 a.m.

The driver of the Chrysler 300 drove away from the crash. Instigators have been working to identify the driver of the vehicle.

Sources say police found a burnt red/maroon Chrysler 300 in north Baton Rouge early Monday morning. The vehicle was found on Erie Street, just west off Plank Road at the site of an old school. Unfortunately, the vehicle was burnt beyond recognition.

Investigators believe this is the car involved in the deadly crash, but still need help piecing the details together.

If you have any information about the crash, or know who the owner of the car is, you are urged to call Crime Stoppers at 225-344-7867.
