A teen driver whose SUV careened into a pole in Manorville the night before Thanksgiving has died of her injuries, Suffolk police said Saturday.

The driver, Candice Shore, 19, was pronounced dead early Saturday, two days after Wednesday's 11:10 p.m. crash, said Det. Sgt. James McGuinness, a supervisor of the police department's Seventh Squad detectives.

Shore's passenger, Jamie Carroll, 18, of Manorville, has been released from a hospital, where she'd been taken with bleeding on the brain.

Police have said the crash happened as Shore, of East Moriches, drove a 1999 Ford Explorer north on Bauer Avenue, near Harmony Street. She lost control of the SUV as she headed around the bend, then overcorrected, crossed the southbound lane and struck the utility pole, police said.

Both teens were ejected from the car. Neither was apparently wearing a seat belt, police said.

The two had been headed to a Starbucks, police said.

The official cause of the crash was still being investigated, McGuinness said Saturday night, but he said speed is thought to have been a factor.

A woman who answered the phone at the home of Jamie Carroll said she could not immediately talk because she was busy caring for Carroll.
