The brother of a man who was killed after hitting his car against a tree while trying to escape the police broke into tears at the place of his death.

Dale Wilson, 24, died on Monday around 3.30 pm after driving an unregistered Holden Commodore in a tree that subsequently went up in flames in Normanville, South Australia.

His brother Matt Wilson visited the scene of his death on Tuesday and said that a & # 39; stupid decision & # 39; cost him his life.

& # 39; If he had just stopped, it would have saved his life. (I am) shattered, lost. I don't know how to tell my children, & Mr Wilson said as reported by Adelaide now.

& # 39; I know my brother so well that he would be scared and he ran, & # 39; he said.

Wilson drove down Willis Drive before a police patrol car discovered that his vehicle was not registered.

The police turned on their lights in attempts to stop Mr. Wilson, but he continued to drive, burned away and rode ahead.

& # 39; The police chased the car to Hay Flat Road, where the driver burned out for the patrol and drove off & # 39 ;, the police said in a statement.

& # 39; The patrol did not continue to chase the car due to the way it was driven and was last seen toward Main South Road. & # 39;

The police found the burning car a few minutes later, but Mr Wilson died on the spot.

Police Commissioner Grant Stevens said the incident was tragic, but it was fortunate that no other bystanders suffered damage during the crash.

& # 39; I understand that driving behavior was rather erratic, so although a tragic loss of human life was devastating, the circumstances could have led to more loss of human life that would have been much more devastating, & # 39; he said.

Wilson was only one in 70 people who died on South Australian roads this year.

Last year this year, the death toll was only 42, while Mr Stevens said police officers across Australia had met in attempts to prevent even more road deaths.

South Australia police said they are investigating the cause of the crash.
