Riverhead Town police have identified a 62-year-old Selden man as the person killed in a Wading River car crash that shut Route 25A early Friday, authorities said.

Daniel Kiernan was driving east on Route 25A in a 1986 Chevrolet pickup near the Dunkin’ Donuts about 6:20 a.m. when he swerved into the eastbound shoulder of the road and crashed into the back of a tractor trailer illegally parked in the shoulder, a police report reads.

Police said they don’t know why Mr. Kiernan drove off the road.

The driver of the tractor trailer — 26-year-old Duwayne Tirado of New Britain, Conn. — had parked his vehicle on the shoulder of Route 25A and had the vehicle’s hazard lights on as he waited to make a delivery to a local landscaping company, police said.

Mr. Kiernan was pronounced dead at the scene and was removed from the car by the Suffolk County Medical Examiner’s office personnel for an autopsy, police said.

There were no passengers in his truck, and no other injuries were reported, police said.

“I heard a loud bang,” said a Dunkin’ Donuts manager who called 911. She said police were on the scene within minutes.

“There were no other cars on the road,” she said of what she described as an eerie early morning scene.

Mr. Tirado was issued a summons for parking violations, police said. The truck is registered with Toria Truck Rental Inc. in Windsor Locks, Conn., police said.

Wading River Fire Chief Jim Evans said volunteer crews were called to the scene but were allowed to leave after finding there were no treatable injuries in the crash.

Suffolk County police and Riverhead police closed Route 25A for six hours as they investigated and cleared the scene. The crash is currently under investigation, Riverhead police said. Any witnesses to the crash are asked to call Riverhead detectives at (631) 727-4500.

  • Please do not forgetto post the photos and also the “rest from the story” immediately after the reunion of the car and its driver. It truly is an incredible tale. I cant hold out for the ending.

  • Perfectly, I’m pleased ot hear you are indeed a genuine and energetic Republican- and I am going to acquire back again my troll accusation and apologize for it. as considerably as your pessimism, it does indeed grate ,specifically as it is actually on continually. I prefer to get cautious and glimpse at facts- most likely Obama ahs a slight lesd yet it’s slight. Every thing is still up for grabs, and coming immediately after avery difficutl month for Romeny ,it can be almost miraculous. there is an iteresting post in the nytimes by nate silvdr- their poll guru- as well as conclusion seesm being the explanation why gallup and rasmussen have this kind of diverse results than a few other polls is mainly because they do not poll cell phones-in contrast for the other individuals. Hence, all these cell phone owners are youthful and can vote for Obama. we shall see. rasmussen and Gallup will have a very large amount of egg on their faces if they misread the elctorate so terribly.
