A Lamborghini driver was killed on Sunday afternoon when he crashed into a pole on a steep hill.
According to the Suffolk County Police Department, 48-year-old Belle Terre resident Glen Nelson was driving east up East Broadway in Port Jefferson in the 2008 Lamborghini when he left the road and struck a pole near High Street.
Port Jefferson Village Trustee Larry LaPointe said on Monday that one of the village’s code officers was the first person on the scene and was able to get into the “horribly mangled vehicle with a person still alive inside.”
LaPointe, the board of trustees’ liaison to the code enforcement bureau, said the code officer, Paul Barbato, started to deliver care to the injured driver.
Despite Barbato’s attempt, the man was pronounced dead at St. Charles Hospital, police said.
Police impounded the Lamborghini for a safety check and detectives from the 6th Squad are investigating the single-car crash.
Anyone with information is asked to call detectives at 631-854-8652.
