Lloyd Williams of Hempstead faces 25 years in prison when he is sentenced Nov. 16.
It is only the third time since 2005 that Nassau County prosecutors have convicted a driver of murder involving a car crash.
Newsday (http://bit.ly/Si6nYv ) reports that Williams' lawyer argued his client had been fleeing a June 2011 bar fight where gunshots were fired.
Prosecutors countered his actions showed a depraved indifference to human life. They also say had three times the legal limit of alcohol, and marijuana, in his blood.
Defense attorney Joseph Lo Piccolo said he intends to appeal the verdict.
