A 2010 Riverhead High School graduate was killed in a single-car crash on I-95 in South Carolina Saturday morning after a U-Haul trailer attached to his truck came loose and he lost control of his vehicle, according to the South Carolina Highway Patrol.

Matthew Quigley, 20, of Wading River and his girlfriend, Pakee Ristine, 19, of Mastic Beach, were ejected from the 2005 Chevy Trailblazer after the truck hit the median and overturned shortly before noon, officials said.

Ms. Ristine, a 2011 graduate of William Floyd High School, is being treated at a Columbia, S.C. hospital, the hospital confirmed Sunday night. The hospital declined to immediately release her status.

Visiting hours for Mr. Quigley will take place Wednesday, Oct. 24, from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. at Alexander-Tuthill Funeral Home in Wading River, immediately followed by a prayer service at 8 p.m. Cremation will be private.

Donations may be made to SoundWaters.org., an organization dedicated to educating children and adults about Long Island Sound and its watershed.

  • Thanks for your valuable post. As time passes, I have come to be able to understand that the particular symptoms of mesothelioma are caused by the build up connected fluid between your lining in the lung and the torso cavity. The ailment may start within the chest place and pass on to other body parts. Other symptoms of pleural mesothelioma cancer include weight-loss, severe respiration trouble, temperature, difficulty ingesting, and irritation of the face and neck areas. It should be noted that some people existing with the disease tend not to experience virtually any serious indicators at all.
