A 27-year-old Hampton Bays man was killed on Sunday afternoon when the truck he was driving struck a tree and rolled across the roadway into the J. Ronald Scott Funeral Home in Hampton Bays, Southampton Town police said.
Jesse Khosrova was driving his 2018 Nissan pickup truck westbound on Fanning Avenue and ran through a stop sign, causing the vehicle to cross over Ponquogue Avenue and strike a tree just before 5 PM, according to Lt. Susan Ralph. The tree strike sparked a chain reaction that caused the truck to roll over across the roadway into the funeral home’s garage.
Khosrova was pronounced dead at the scene. His passenger, Edward Erskine, 23, of Hampton Bays, was transported by members of the Hampton Bays Volunteer Ambulance Company to Stony Brook Southampton Hospital for treatment of serious injuries sustained in the crash.
Ralph could not say at this time if alcohol or drugs were a contributing factor in the crash.
