Update: Long Island Expressway crash victim identified

Crash near exit 73

A 26-year-old man was airlifted after his vehicle flipped over near the end of the Long Island Expressway Wednesday night, according to a Riverhead Town police press release.

John Parry of Patchogue was driving a 2002 Mercury Mountaineer at around 8:10 p.m. when his vehicle collided with the shoulder of the roadway and overturned “several times before coming to rest in the median between the eastbound exit ramp of Exit 72 and Exit 73,” police said.

A medevac helicopter was called to take the victim to Stony Brook Medical Center, officials said.

His injuries were later determined to be non-life threatening, police said.
