Woman found in car still unidentified

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Investigators are still trying to determine the identity of a woman who was burned beyond recognition in a car accident along Myerstown Road Tuesday morning, police said.

Her gender is the only thing known about her, Jefferson County Sheriff William Senseney said Wednesday.

The body was found in a 1995 Toyota Tercel that struck a utility pole along the road about 6 a.m. Tuesday.

Police believe the car caught fire after striking the pole.

Medical examiners may have to rely on dental records to identify the woman, said Chief Deputy Jesse Jones.
