This news tip and accompanying footage is courtesy of Sheepshead Bites reader Yelena. On Tuesday she managed to capture video of a sports car with Jersey plates, apparently a Porsche that had caught fire, on the ramp for Exit 4 on the Belt Parkway.
Here’s what Yelena had to say:
I’m an active reader of your forum, I have to say thanks to your News Blog I stay informed of whats going on around me. Yesterday afternoon my boyfriend and I were driving back from AC, tired beyond belief I saw some thing you don’t see everyday. A posche (sic) that was steaming with smoke, at first I just saw a bunch of smoke then noticed the fire beneath the vehicle. The video isn’t great but if you pause at 8 sec you’ll get the picture. Thanks for your time! Btw keep it up your blog is truly one of a kind.
You can link to the video here (FYI- the ‘S bomb’ gets dropped at the end)
Thanks, Yelena! [FYI- The Bean? Also one of a kind ; )]
