Troopers say the flames were too hot and too quick for anyone to rescue Williams.

Sgt. Brian Nelson/Utah Highway Patrol: "There was too much flames. Witnesses said it was too hot. The flames were pretty big when the first officer arrived."

Troopers don't believe William was speeding. They don't know yet what caused the crash.
