Melville man dies after hitting tree
A Melville man died Thursday after his car crashed into a tree about 2 miles from his home, Suffolk police said.
Sidney Stein, 82, was in his Lexus going north on Bagatelle Road when he likely suffered a medical crisis about 3:35 p.m. and lost control of his car, police said.
The Lexus crossed over into the southbound lane and hit a tree just north of Hemingway Drive, police said.
Stein was taken to Plainview Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said.
His car was impounded for a safety check and the investigation is continuing, police said.
