The crash happened about 11:40 p.m. when Legendre was driving a 2012 Ford van north on Bayview Avenue and lost control of the vehicle, Meyers said.

Meyers said the van crossed over the southbound lane onto a lawn on Bayview Avenue, struck a utility pole and then continued on the lawn before overturning and crashing into a tree.

Legendre was taken to Southside Hospital in Bay Shore for treatment, Meyers said.

Arraignment information was not immediately available.
