A man who was pronounced dead after apparently experiencing a medical emergency and then crashing his car into a tree in Middle Island during the weekend was identified by Suffolk County police Wednesday as Ubaid Aziz.
Aziz, 54, was a Middle Island resident, police said.
Police said the crash happened shortly before 3:30 p.m. Monday on East Bartlett Road on the grounds of the Spring Lake Golf Club in Middle Island.
Aziz passed out before crashing on Christmas Day, police said, though they did not know the nature of what they said was a “prior medical condition.”
Aziz was alone in the car and was pronounced dead at Brookhaven Memorial Hospital Medical Center in East Patchogue, police said.
