Suffolk Police are investigating a crash that has left a 19-year-old Holbrook native in critical condition tonight.
According to authorities, Nicholas Demaio, 19, was driving his 1997 Ford Escort northbound on Nicolls Road when he apparently lost control and careered across the grass median at 2:30 p.m. Friday. The vehicle flipped several times before it came to a stop in the southbound lanes of the road.
Demaio was rushed to Stony Brook Hospital where he is listed in critical condition. There were no other vehicles involved in the crash.
The Escort was impounded for a safety check and the investigation is ongoing. Detectives are asking anyone with information to contact the Fifth Precinct at (631) 854-8552. All calls will be kept confidential.
