Update: Cigarette Set Teen Ablaze at Concord BART Station

Update: Thursday at 1:30 p.m.A teenage boy suffered significant burns when his clothing caught fire outside the Concord BART station late Wednesday night.

At about 11:35 p.m. Wednesday, police and fire crews responded to a report of a male on fire at the BART station, located at 1451 Oakland Ave., a Contra Costa County fire dispatcher said. When emergency crews arrived, they found the victim suffering from burns and airlifted him to a hospital.

BART police Lt. Mike Hayes said it appears that a short time earlier, the boy had been working on a car belonging to someone he met at a nearby store. While working on the vehicle, he spilled gasoline on himself.  The boy told police that the driver then dropped him off at the Concord BART station and lit a cigarette before departing, Hayes said.

Based on the initial investigation, Hayes said, it appears that the flame ignited the gasoline vapors coming from boy's clothing.  The boy then jumped out of the vehicle and stripped off his burning clothes, Hayes said.  He suffered significant burns to his arms and chest, according to Hayes.  The driver of the vehicle had left the scene before police and firefighters arrived at the BART station, and police have not been able to identify that person.  BART police Sgt. Tom Smith said no suspects are in custody this morning and that detectives are checking surveillance video from Wednesday night.
During the BART Engineer Accident investigation I met Lt. Hayes where I told him to look to the buildings to the south that the Plaintiff Attorneys winning millions upon millions in jury awards could see the accident scenes.  Taking that further I plotted suicides, shootings, fires (arson) and accidents where this pattern emerged that perch points were evident e.g. my 2004 Arson fire, the deadly Walnut Creek Pipeline fire in 2004 then the Caldecott Tunnel Fires was also the same perch point where Adam Williams and his mother murder suicide up on Lookout Point on Mt. Diablo.
