A 60-year-old man was killed Friday when the 1997 Honda Civic he was driving on Route 105 in Riverhead crossed over into oncoming traffic and collided with 2013 Lexus, Riverhead Town police said Saturday.
Domingo Juan Francisco of Riverhead was traveling north on Route 105 at 8:35 p.m. when his Honda crossed over into the southbound lanes and collided head-on with the Lexus, police said.
The Riverhead Fire Department helped remove the drivers, who were the sole occupants of their vehicles, police said. Riverhead Volunteer Ambulance Corps and Flanders/Northampton Volunteer Ambulance Corps also responded.
Both drivers were transported to Peconic Bay Medical Center, where the Francisco died, police said.
The 61-year-old woman operating the Lexus was treated for injuries that were not life-threatening, police said.
The investigation revealed that the Honda's operator had been involved in a minor crash on Route 24 in Flanders and had left the scene just before this collision, police said.
Anyone with information about the crash was asked to contact the Town of Riverhead Police Department at 631-727-4500.
