One Dead in Fiery Crash

Police have not released the name of the occupant of a 2002 Toyota 4Runner who was found dead Friday after firefighters extinguished a blaze in the vehicle.

Police said that the Suffolk Medical Examiner's Office is investigating. Volunteers from the Amagansett Fire Department responded and put out the fire.

According to the news release, the accident took place at about 11:25 p.m. Police asked that anyone with information phone them at 631-537-7575.
