said the on Monday that the driver of the on Sunday afternoon only had learner's permit.
One of the passengers in the vehicle was partially ejected in the two-car accident on Flamingo Avenue and is listed in critical condition on Monday at Stony Brook University Medical Center, according to Lt. Thomas Grenci. Fabian Conce, who is 22 and lives in East Hampton, has a fractured skull and a punctured lung. He was airlifted after being treated by personnel.
The driver, Diego Barahona, 19, of East Hampton was also injured in the crash and was taken to Southampton Hospital where he was treated and released. He received a summons for driving out of class.
Grenci said it appears Barahona's 2003 Chevrolet Suburban tried to pass a 2000 Chevrolet Prizm as it was making a left onto Culloden Place. Ian Hesslop, who was driving the Prizm, was not hurt.
While police have not finished their accident reconstruction report, Grenci said they don't believe Conce was wearing a seatbelt.
Police have noted driver inexperience on the accident report, but speed has not yet determined to be a factor. "If he was going slower, in my opinion, he wouldn't have rolled over," Grenci said.
Conce, who received the worst of the injuries, was sitting behind the passenger seat. Two other passengers, Carlos Guazhambo, 22, and Jofre Rodes, 19, received cuts and scrapes, and were treated at the scene. They refused to be taken to the hospital, Grenci said.
