A  man critically injured in a seven-vehicle crash on the Robert Moses Causeway in Islip was identified Thursday as 19-year-old Queens resident, New York State Police said.

Sameer Ramnarine, driving a 1997 Lexus, was critically injured in the Wednesday night crash and treated at Good Samaritan Hospital in West Islip, police said.
