A car crash occurred on Wednesday, January fourteenth, 2009. The accident took place in East Meadow, New York.

On Wednesday night, Michael Sinclair, 20, from Levittown, was driving his vehicle south on Newbridge Road. At around eleven, p.m., he lost control of his black Infiniti and hit the back of another vehicle who was waiting to make a left turn. The vehicle he hit was a black 1998 Toyota Camry. After it was hit, the car was forced back one hundred feet down Newbridge Road where it smashed into a pole on the western side of the street. The driver was thrown out of the vehicle where he sustained serious injury.

Sinclair was allegedly under the influence of illegal drugs at the time of the accident. He has been arrested and charged for driving with the substance. Kyle Whitenack, 22, of Grace Lane, was a passenger in Sinclair’s car. He was also charged with criminal possession of a prohibited matter.
