Man killed after SUV crosses roadway, overturns
An SUV overturned in a wooded area in Port Jefferson Station early on Sunday morning, killing the driver.
The Suffolk County Police Department said the man was heading south on Route 112 in a gray 2004 Ford Explorer, near Washington Avenue, at about 4:20 a.m. when he lost control of the vehicle. He crossed over into the northbound side of the road, then left the roadway and overturned in a wooded area.
A physician assistant from the Office of the Suffolk County Medical Examiner pronounced him dead at the scene, police said.
Police did not immediately identify the driver, as his next of kin had not yet been notified.
The SCPD impounded the Explorer for a safety check.
Detectives from the 6th Squad are investigating the single-car crash. Anyone who may have witnessed it is asked to call them at 631-854-8652.
