Excessive speed is believed to have been a major factor in a fatal crash at Seaford last night.
Police say the man, 41, lost control of his Ford sedan on Frankston-Dandenong Road about 10.30pm.
The car smashed into a tree, tore in half and was set alight.
“The vehicle has accelerated heavily to a very high speed and, for whatever reason, the driver has lost control and collided with a tree,” Sergeant David Collins said.
The man, from Carrum Downs, died at the scene.
Police are keen to speak to any witnesses or anyone with dash-cam footage that may have been in the area at the time.
