Police said the two incidents were unrelated but happened at about the same time. Police said no one was injured badly in the single-car accident at the Margate Bridge, where a car ran into a toll booth. At about the same time, a wildfire of unknown origin flared up on an adjacent marsh.
The fire was contained as of 3 p.m., police said.
