The driver was taken via Cold Spring Harbor Ambulance to Huntington Hospital in Huntington where he was pronounced dead this morning at 1:45 a.m. The victim’s name is being withheld pending notification of family.

The investigation is continuing and detectives are asking anyone who may have witnessed the crash to contact the Second Squad at 631-854-8252.

    SEVERAL trees? How fast was he going when he “lost control”?

    How many deaths does the highway department need to reduce speed and put up more radar signs? I have spoken to them several times! Come now supervisor please do something!

    the speed limit is 30. Driving normally, he would not have a problem. Speed and the results were his fault, not the highway dept.

      I believe the speed limit is 35 and there are very small signs around the curves posting 25 but their should be some caution lights and radar signs warning the persons actual speed, it could save lives.
