Authorities said Tuesday the man who died in an early morning car fire on Route 35 last week was a Berkeley resident.
Robert Sanders, of Leeward Court in the Bayville section of Berkeley, died in a 2001 Jeep Cherokee that burst into flames near a bank branch office on Route 35 early in the morning of Oct. 19, First Assistant Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni said. Sanders was 34.
The exact cause of death is still under investigation, Gramiccioni said. No other details on the incident were available.
Once the fire was put out, a single occupant, the driver, was found inside.
