Joan Adams Death, Obituary – The authorities who investigated the fatal head-on collision that occurred on Long Island late on Friday night have made public the names of the four victims who lost their lives in the horrible accident. The town of Wilton was represented by one of the individuals who tragically passed away.
Southold Town police have confirmed the deaths of the following five people as a direct result of the collision that occurred in East Marion: William Price, 55, of Wilton; Heath Miller, 47, of Greenport, New York; Peter R. Smith, 80, and Patricia A. O’Neill, 66, both of Brooklyn; and Patricia A. O’Neill, of Wilton.
All of these victims were located in Brooklyn. Price and Miller were driving a 2023 Tesla westbound on New York State Highway 25, while Smith and O’Neill were driving a 2020 Ford Explorer eastbound in the opposite direction. Both vehicles were traveling in the same direction. The authorities have stated this to be the case.
Chief Martin Flatley of the Southold Town Police Department remarked that the fact that the Tesla was an electric vehicle made it more difficult to extinguish the fire that broke out inside the vehicle. According to the statements made by the police, the collision took place on Route 25 just a little bit after 11:30 o’clock at night.
According to the reports that have come from the authorities, detectives from Southold were looking into the incident when it happened. In addition to the fire departments of East Marion, Orient, and Southold, it was stated that the emergency services unit of the Suffolk County Police Department responded to the incident.
