A 46-year-old Alburtis man was killed Sunday night in a fiery crash in Longswamp Township, state police reported Monday.

Troopers from the Reading station say an eastbound pickup truck driven by Jonathan L. Miller struck a tree and burst into flames in the 1800 block of State Street near Mertztown.

The crash was reported at 7:09 p.m.

Miller was pronounced dead at the scene by a member of the Berks County coroner's office.

State Street was closed for about four hours while troopers investigated.

Miller was the first person to die this year as the result of a crash on Berks County roads.
