A single-car crash early Saturday in Westbury left the driver dead and three passengers injured, Nassau County police said.

Michael M. Deveny, 33, of Massapequa, was driving a 1998 Nissan Altima east on School Street at 4:45 a.m. when he lost control of the car and struck a utility pole, detectives said in a news release. The car continued east, striking a tree and a stop sign before coming to a stop at the corner of School and Madison streets.

Deveny was thrown from the car and killed, police said. A Nassau County police paramedic pronounced him dead at the scene.

Police have not identified the three passengers, a 35-year-old man in the front seat and a man and woman, both 22, in the back seat. Emergency Service Unit officers and Westbury Fire Department personnel removed the three passengers from the car, police said. They were taken to hospitals to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

A photo of the crash scene shows a mangled white sedan with heavy front-end damage.

The investigation is ongoing.
