A Wanaque father has been identified as the driver who was incinerated Thursday morning by a live utility wire in Franklin Lakes.

Anthony Gonzalez, a father of three, died after driving around traffic cones and trying to move a downed wire in that was blocking Summit Avenue near the intersection of Route 208 just before 9 a.m., authorities said.

Jackie Milnes of Fair Lawn, who works with Gonzalez' wife as a teacher, started a GoFundMe for the family.

The site had raised nearly $500 as of mid Thursday afternoon.
