Pelham Resident's Car Damaged By Firework

PELHAM, N.Y. – A firework ignited on the roof of a Pelham resident’s car while he was visiting his mother in New Rochelle, the Pelham police reported. While inside his mother’s residence at 1:50 a.m. Sunday, the man heard “what sounded like a shotgun” and “observed a white flash from outside,” the report said.

The man left at 2:15 a.m. and noticed a “big dent” on the roof of his car, which was parked on the Pelham side of Pelhamdale Avenue. He headed to the Pelham Police Department to report the incident, and an officer photographed the car and damage. The car belongs to his father, who lives in Pelham, police said.

The following items also were reported by Pelham police:

Semiconscious Man: A man who suffers from diabetes was semiconscious in the driver’s seat of his parked car at Corlies Avenue and Boulevard at 8:01 p.m. Sunday. When police arrived, he told them he may have passed out because of low blood sugar. He was taken to Sound Shore Medical Center for evaluation.

Barking Dog: A caller reported a “dog barking uncontrollably” at 5:32 a.m. Sunday on Sixth Avenue. A patrol car circled the block several times but could not find a barking dog.

Monoxide Alarm: Police and the Fire Department responded to a Highbrook Avenue home after a carbon monoxide alarm went off at 5:44 a.m. Thursday. They reported that everything was OK.
