      Irishman's Death in Burning Car: Rescued man also dies.
      One man was burned to death and another died later in hospital when a
      car in which they were travelling over-turned and burst into flames a
      few miles outside Newry, Co Down, on Thurs. night.
      THOMAS McALINDEN [60], of Co Armagh, was trapped in the burning
      wreckage and his charred body was recovered after the flames had been
      beaten out. The driver, MICHAEL CAMPBELL, of Canal St, Newry, escaped
      through the roof and dragged out JOSEPH MAGILL, of Bessbrook, who was
      taken to hospital severely burned and died there last night.
      At the inquest last night on THOMAS McALINDEN, MICHAEL CAMPBELL said
      he tried to avoid running over a dog, the car developed a wobble, and
      before he could correct it the car turned on its side.
      CAMPBELL was exonerated from blame and a verdict was returned in
      accordance with medical evidence.
