Investigators believe the vehicle was traveling westbound when for an unknown reason it veered off the highway, struck the barrier and caught fire.
The vehicle traveled across all the lanes of traffic before it stopped on the shoulder of the highway, Arlington police said.
Arlington police continued on Monday to investigate a cause for the fatal crash.
Authorities closed the westbound lanes of the highway for several hours as police investigated the wreck.
