Suffolk County Police last night arrested a man following a motor vehicle crash that seriously injured a passenger in his vehicle in East Farmingdale last night.
Fritz Andral was driving a 2008 Honda sedan southbound on Baiting Place Road when the vehicle left the roadway and crashed into a tree at approximately 10:15 p.m. A male passenger in the front seat, Jean Dorcine, 22, of Farmingdale, was transported to Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center in West Islip for treatment of serious injuries. Andral was transported to the same hospital, treated for minor injuries, and released. A female passenger in the backseat was not injured.  The Honda was impounded for a safety check.
