A Holbrook man was killed in a single-car crash Wednesday night outside Long Island MacArthur Airport in Ronkonkoma after his car went off the road, hit a pole and burst into flames, police said.
Robert M. Nolan Jr., 52, was traveling west on Veterans Memorial Highway at about 9:30 p.m. when his 2015 Honda Accord veered off the roadway near Johnson Avenue and struck a metal utility pole, Suffolk County police said in a news release.
“The vehicle caught fire and became fully engulfed in flames,” police said.
Nolan was pronounced dead at the scene by a physician assistant from the Suffolk medical examiner’s office. Twenty-five firefighters from the Bohemia Fire Department responded, said Assistant Fire Chief Scott Thompson.
Police did not provide additional details regarding the crash.
