The accident happened Thursday night in the area of Deer Park Avenue and Grant Boulevard in Deer Park. Suffolk County police said the driver of a Toyota Camry and the driver of a Honda Accord were stopped at a red light on Grand Boulevard shortly before 11 p.m. when they were struck from behind by a man driving a Mazda.

The impact sent the three vehicles into the intersection and they crashed into a Nissan Sentra.  The collision forced the Toyota across Deer Park Avenue and off the roadway. The Toyota driver was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. His name was not immediately released.

The driver of the Honda, a 45-year-old Greenlawn woman, and the Mazda driver, an 18-year-old Valley Stream man, were hospitalized but their injuries were not considered life-threatening. The Nissan driver, a 32-year-old Melville man, was not injured.

The cars were all impounded for safety checks as police continued their investigation.
