A Bay Shore teen pleaded guilty Tuesday to aggravated vehicular driving and manslaughter for driving drunk and hitting two pedestrians, killing an Islip man on Christmas Day.
Prosecutors said Jonnathan Zhicaypincay, 19, was driving a 2004 Honda Pilot while under the influence of drugs and alcohol the afternoon of Christmas Day when he hit two pedestrians walking out of an apartment on Union Avenue at Johnston Drive.
The crash killed Luis Trujillo, 67, who was pronounced dead at the scene shortly after the crash at 2:44 p.m. The second pedestrian sustained serious injuries, authorities said.
Zhicaypincay also hit a parked 2001 Toyota Camry, an electronic pedestrian crossing sign and a tree, police said.
Police said Zhicaypincay had bloodshot, glassy eyes with slurred speech, and was stumbling with alcohol on his breath.
Zhicaypincay was taken to South Shore University Hospital in Bay Shore where authorities said he admitted drinking and taking drugs. He underwent a blood test showing his blood alcohol concentration above the legal limit at .13, prosecutors said.
He was arrested with cocaine found in his wallet and the blood test showed he was under the influence of cocaine and cannabis, prosecutors said.
He is set to be sentenced Nov. 17.
