MANSFIELD — Authorities say they are awaiting the results of testing by the state Medical Examiner’s office before they can determine the identity of the man fatally burned in a car fire over the weekend.
Good Samaritans pulled the man from the burning car in the rest area off Interstate 95 North shortly around 3:45 p.m. Sunday.
A witness, Kelly Borrayo, 20, of Providence, told The Sun Chronicle she saw two other motorists forced open the car door after she heard a loud boom and saw the vehicle erupt in flames.
Gregg Miliote, a spokesman for Bristol County District Attorney Thomas Quinn, said Monday investigators are awaiting tests by the state Medical Examiner to determine the identity of the victim.
Mansfield and North Attleboro fire departments responded to scene.
The incident is under investigation by state police assigned to the district attorney’s office, Mansfield fire officials and the state Fire Marshal’s office.
