The Rocky Point Fire Department and Suffolk Police responded for a car that crashed into the woods, overturned, and burst into flames on Rocky Point-Yaphank Road, north of Whiskey Road. The driver of the car, which was northbound at the time, apparently lost control and left the roadway crashing into the woods, leaving a path of destruction, debris and car parts. The cars gas tank was leaking, causing a gasoline fed fire hampering firefighter’s efforts. They used foam to extinguish the blaze. Sound Beach responded on mutual aid. Two people were injured, one seriously.
