Man Killed In Post Falls Car Fire Identified

UPDATE: The man killed in a car fire has been identified as 26-year-old Justin Gardner of Rathdrum, Idaho. It happened near the intersection of E. Seltice Way and N. Cedar St. last Wednesday.

Idaho State Police told KHQ's Matt Rogers at the scene that Gardner had left work at around 3:30 Wednesday morning after suffering some sort of diabetic reaction, according to his co-workers, who went looking for him.  

ISP says Gardner was driving west on Seltice Way when he went onto a closed portion of Seltice Way. A passerby spotted the car fire and alerted authorities, who say they don't know what, specifically, caused the fire. The vehicle did not roll or crash. Gardner died at the scene.
