JERSEY CITY, NJ – Police believe that the vehicle fire which led to a man’s death Wednesday morning was the result of a “minor” traffic accident, according to the Hudson Reporter.
The determination was made by the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office, which is reviewing the case alongside the Hudson County Regional Arson Task Force, the Hudson County Regional Collision Investigation Unit, and the Jersey City Police Department. More information could be forthcoming as those investigations continue.
The incident occurred at the intersection of Hutton Street and New York Avenue at approximately 7:45 a.m. on January 27. Emergency responders arrived to find a vehicle on fire. When they put out the flames, they discovered a badly burned man behind the wheel. They pronounced him dead at the scene.
