A 57-year-old Brightwaters man was killed Thursday while riding his bike along Route 25 in Calverton after he was struck by a motorist who was driving with a suspended license while high on drugs with his four children in the car, Riverhead Town police said.

William Slatton, 30, of Middle Island was headed west along Route 25 near Calverton National Cemetery in his 2005 Toyota Camry when he lost control of his car, veered into oncoming traffic and struck Steven F. Kane as he rode his bicycle east in the south shoulder.

Several witnesses to the crash and other passing motorists, including a Ridge fire chief, attempted to perform first aid to revive Mr. Kane, who was pronounced dead at the scene by a Wading River paramedic.

Mr. Slatton was arrested by Riverhead Police officers who said his for children — all under the age of nine — were in the car. He was also found to be high on drugs and driving with a suspended license, police said. A police press release did not say which drugs Mr. Slatton was under the influence of.

He was held overnight for a Friday morning arraignment.
