Suffolk County police arrested a Massapequa woman following a crash that killed a Florida man early Sunday morning. Police say Eric Licursi was driving his 1996 Honda south on Woodbury Road in Cold Spring Harbor when he lost control of his vehicle and struck a tree at 2:49 a.m. The Honda overturned and Licursi was partially ejected from the vehicle. A passing motorist in a 2003 Lincoln Aviator stopped to offer assistance.

A short time later, 33-year-old Melissa Woods was driving south on Woodbury Road in her 2007 Toyota Solara and approached the crash. Woods was unable to stop and her vehicle struck Licursi's overturned Honda and then struck the unoccupied Lincoln Aviator.

Licursi, 24, of Cape Coral, Florida, was pronounced dead at the scene by a physician assistant from the Office of the Suffolk County Medical Examiner. The passenger in Woods' vehicle was treated and released from Huntington Hospital for minor injuries to her back and shoulder.

Detectives charged Woods with driving while intoxicated.
