Man and Woman in Stolen Car Arrested Following Motor Vehicle Crash

Suffolk County Police last night arrested a man and a woman after they were involved in a motor vehicle crash in a stolen car. 
Seventh Precinct officers responded to Estate Court in Sound Beach after a 911 caller reported a suspicious vehicle parked in the street at approximately 5:11 p.m. When officers arrived, the vehicle, a 2006 Hyundai Elantra driven by Adam Berry, fled the scene. The Hyundai, which had been reported stolen on June 28, 2019, drove south on Westchester Drive, then east on Route 25A before crashing into a 2015 Honda sedan at Fairway Drive in Rocky Point at 5:40 p.m.
Berry was transported to John T. Mather Memorial Hospital in Port Jefferson with minor injuries. The driver of the Honda, a 29-year-old female, was transported to Stony Brook University Hospital with minor injuries. A passenger in the Hyundai, Veronica Johnson, was not injured.
Berry, 22, who is un-domiciled, was charged with Criminal Possession of Stolen Property 4th Degree, Reckless Endangerment 2nd Degree and Fleeing an Officer in a Motor Vehicle 3rd Degree. He is being held overnight at the Seventh Precinct and is scheduled to be arraigned at First District Court in Central Islip on July 13. Johnson, 28, of 161 Lake Shore Road, Ronkonkoma, was charged with Loitering Unlawful Use of a Controlled Substance.  She is scheduled to be arraigned at a later date.
A criminal charge is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
