YAPHANK, LONG ISLAND, NY – Police are investigating a multi-vehicle crash at a Long Island intersection that left two men dead, reports the Nassau Daily Voice.

The accident happened along William Floyd Parkway in Yaphank at about 7:30 p.m. Saturday night. Suffolk County Police said 70-year-old Robert Manganaro was driving north in a Chevrolet Suburban when he stopped for a red light at Yaphank Woods Road.

Bazzey, of Mastic Beach, was pronounced dead at the scene.  Manganaro, a Yaphank resident, was pronounced dead later at Stony Brook University Hospital.  The driver of the Maxima sustained minor injuries and was treated at Stony Brook University Hospital.
