A passenger in a sport utility vehicle was killed in an accident with a tractor trailer Wednesday afternoon in Farmingdale, police said.

Nassau police homicide squad detectives are investigating the crash at 2:39 p.m. at Fulton and Main streets.

A tractor trailer collided with a Toyota RAV4 at the intersection. The passenger of the Toyota was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

Nassau police on Thursday identified the victim as Byron I. Unda, 28, of Bay Shore.

An image from the scene shows a mangled car that came to rest on its side against a downed utility pole, between a box truck and the tractor trailer.

Hempstead Turnpike was reopened after being closed in both directions between Main and Fulton to keep drivers away from the scene of the accident, the police said.
