Goebel was driving a 2009 Honda Civic south on Route 109, and tried to make a left onto Platt Avenue about 6 p.m., police said, when he was struck by a 2001 Dodge Ram pickup, which was traveling north.

The other driver, Matthew Silverman, 23, of Pacific Street, Lindenhurst, and a 17-year-old passenger in Goebel's car also were taken to the hospital, police said, but their injuries were not considered life-threatening. First Squad detectives asked that anyone with information call 631-854-8152.
