According to a varied number of news articles, a car fire that occurred last Monday on the Foxen Canyon Road is under investigation by the California Highway Patrol.
The official accident release issued by the authorities has revealed that the fire may have something to do with the hit-and-run crash that happened last Sunday that resulted in a fatality.
According to the troopers who responded to the fire scene, the vehicle engulfed in flames may have been connected to the accident that happened at the interchange of Highway 166 and 101 but that since there was little evidence left at the incident scene, the fire did not appear to have been caused as a result of the crash.
At this moment, the CHP and other forensic experts are looking into the fiberglass remnants at the scene to verify if the burned car was a 2005 or 2006 Chevrolet Corvette, which is the car that, according to the authorities, was responsible for the fatal hit-and-run accident.
The California Highway Patrol has urged witnesses with any information related to this vehicle or the driver responsible for this accident to step up and contact them immediately.
According to the news, the victim hasn’t been identified up to this moment. The authorities are still looking into all possible scenarios but details regarding this investigation and the causes behind this vehicular fire are not yet available.
Hopefully, the factors related to this accident are identified so similar occurrences can be avoided in the future.
