Police said the man likely suffered some sort of medical emergency and ran into the tree.

The officer said the car may have briefly been on fire, possibly due to the vehicle's tires spinning and creating heat. The Grand Forks Fire Department also responded to the call.

The driver was taken to Altru hospital for evaluation.
