A Huntington Station man who was seriously injured after running a red light early Sunday in Melville — and striking another vehicle — was charged with driving while intoxicated, Suffolk police said.
Brenten Biber, 32, was driving a 2017 Honda Civic westbound on Baylis Road at about 6:15 a.m. when he went through the red light at Broadhollow Road and hit a vehicle heading south, police said.
Jay Kim, 61, of East Northport, was driving a 2014 Honda Accord when it collided with the Civic, police said.
The Melville Fire Department responded with three ambulances, a heavy rescue truck and a fire engine, according to a spokesman. About 25 firefighters and EMS personnel were on the scene.
After being rescued with the Jaws of Life tools, Kim was taken to Huntington Hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries, the department said.
Biber was taken to Nassau University Medical Center in East Meadow with serious injuries. He will be arraigned at a later date, police said.
Anyone with information about the crash should call the Suffolk police department’s Second Squad at 631-854-8252.
