Suffolk District Attorney Timothy Sini said Friday he anticipated upgraded charges against the driver of a stolen car that caused “one of the worst motor vehicle crashes in Suffolk County’s history.”
“We have five fatalities. Five people who can no longer go home to their families,” Sini said at First District Court in Central Islip after the arraignment of Jamel Turner, 23, of Bellport. “We have one individual who is seriously physically injured, a neck fracture that could cause injury for the rest of his life.”
Sini said the accident scene “looked like an airplane crash.”
“This is a serious, serious crime,” Sini said. “We are going to thoroughly investigate it in partnership with the Suffolk County Police Department and ensure that all appropriate charges are brought.”
