Firefighters Douse Burning Car Wreck

Rockaway firefighters extinguished a car fire last Friday when a 71-year-old St. Albans man crashed his Chevy into a light pole and his crumpled car burst into flames. Police said the man was turning left from Beach Channel Drive onto Beach 108 Street at about 4:30 p.m. when he collided with an eastbound vehicle and then smashed into the pole. The flames reached the middle of the driver-side door and melted the door handle inside the vehicle, but the man safely escaped. EMS transported him to Peninsula Hospital Center where he was treated for leg pain.
