A 66-year-old Long Island man was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated after he was involved in a motor vehicle crash that killed a Setauket man. Suffolk County police say Michael Koss was operating his 2004 Jeep Cherokee westbound on Route 25A, approximately 1/4 mile west of Gateway Drive in Wading River, when he crossed into the eastbound lane of traffic and struck a 2000 Honda Civic Saturday afternoon.

The driver of the Honda, 61-year-old Edward Carr and his passenger, Ilene Wasserman, 58, both of Setauket, were airlifted to Stony Brook University Medical Center where Carr was pronounced dead. Wasserman was in critical condition.

Michael Koss, of Rocky Point, and his two passengers, 60-year-old Serena Koss and 55-year-old Mary Lynch were transported by ambulance to Stony Brook University Medical Center where they were all in serious condition.
