A 26-year-old woman died of her injuries following an alleged DWI in Holbrook last week.
Kristen Iacono, of East Setauket, was driving west on the north service road of the Long Island Expressway early on the morning of May 23 when a vehicle driven by James O'Donnell, of Centereach, slammed into Iacono's 2005 Lincoln, according to police.
Iacono was transported to Stony Brook University Medical Center, where she died a day later.
O'Donnell, 47, was not injured in the crash, which occurred at the intersection of Holbrook Road and the service road. O'Donnell, who had been travelling north on Holbrook Road, was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated. There's been no word from the Suffolk County District Attorney's Office as to whether charges will be upgraded against O'Donnell in light of Iacono's death.
A passenger in Iacono's car, Joseph Kemp, 30, of Holbrook, was treated for non-life-threatening injuries at the hospital.
A wake for Iacono continues Wednesday at Bryant Funeral Home in East Setauket. The funeral will be held Thursday at St. James RC Church in Setauket. For more info, visit the funeral home's website here.
