The Wading River teenager critically injured in a car crash last month is now listed in fair condition, a hospital official has confirmed.

Alex Roytman, 19, was injured in a Nov. 17 accident on Nicolls Road in Hotlsville and has been recovering at Stony Brook University Medical Center since.

Mr. Roytman was a backseat passenger in a car driven by Mykel Wylie, 18, of Riverhead, when Mr. Wylie lost control of his 2002 Hyundai Elantra as he exited onto the southbound Nicolls Road exit ramp of the Long Island Expressway and was struck by a Mack truck at approximately 2:50 p.m., according to Suffolk County police.

The Hyundai was then struck by a 2013 Nissan Rogue, which was also traveling southbound on Nicolls Road, police said.

On Monday, a hospital official said Mr. Roytman is conscious and his vital signs are stable.
