SETAUKET, N.Y. (AP) — Police in New York say an inebriated man ran over and killed a friend who had climbed out of his car and started walking home because she was worried he was drunk.
The accident happened at around 4 a.m. Saturday in Setauket on Long Island.
Suffolk County police say 23-year-old Lawrence Pagano called 911 after his car struck 21-year-old Krystal Berkowitz.
Police determined that Berkowitz had gotten out of Pagano's car and had begun walking home. Police say Pagano tried to pull over to talk to Berkowitz but instead hit her with his vehicle.
Berkowitz, of Stony Brook, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Pagano, of Coram, was arrested on a charge of driving while intoxicated.
It wasn't immediately clear if Pagano had an attorney.
