Driver Flees Burning Flipped-Over Car in Tarrytown

TARRYTOWN, N.Y. – The driver of a car that flipped over and caught fire June 1 fled the scene of the accident at Benedict Avenue and Midland Avenue in Tarrytown, police said.

Police are looking for the driver. A 911 call was placed after a burning car was discovered upside down at about 11 p.m. Firefighters and police responded, putting out the fire and finding an ID that possibly belonged to the driver.

But an attempt to locate the driver based on the car's registration led police nowhere, and they impounded the car.

Fire Chief Eugene Gasparre drove over debris from the accident, flattening a tire on his village car.

Police also reported the following:

• An unspecified amount of money and jewelry was reported stolen June 2 by the resident of a North Washington apartment.

• An apparently drunk man walked into traffic on South Broadway and began throwing his shoes and socks around at midnight June 1, police said. Officers called the man's parent to pick him up.

• A sign valued at $1,350 was stolen May 23, and a Sunnyside representative asked police to file a criminal case.

• Several sightings of baby deer in the village were reported to police. A Dixon Street resident reported finding a baby deer in his yard at about 9 a.m. June 1. A fawn was spotted later the same day resting in shrubs in the Key Bank parking lot at about 2:30 p.m. A fawn was spotted in the C-Town Supermarket parking lot at about 11:30 a.m. June 2 before it walked into a wooded area.

• Alan Katzman, 52, was charged with driving while intoxicated, a misdemeanor, after a traffic stop near Washington Irving Intermediate School at about 12:30 a.m. June 1, police said. Katzman three times refused a breath test and refused to tell officers the name of a responsible person who could pick him up, police said.

• Taishi Iwata, 20, was charged with disorderly conduct, a violation, after officers dispersed a group of noisy students from EF International Academy at the Set Back Inn at about 1:30 a.m. May 31, police said. Iwata was released on $100 cash bail.
