Roslyn Heights Crash Leaves Man Dead

A 98-year-old Pennsylvania man was killed when a dump truck crashed into his vehicle in Roslyn Heights early Tuesday morning.

Nassau County police said Frank Winfrey of Philadelphia was driving a Chevrolet southbound on Roslyn Road when his vehicle collided with a westbound Mack truck at the corner of Powerhouse Road at 5:40 a.m.

The truck then struck a utility pole, knocking it to the ground and causing power outages in the area.

Winfrey was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead a half hour later.

The 39-year-old man driving the truck and a 43-year-old man riding with him were treated for minor injuries.

Homicide Squad detectives impounded both vehicles and are continuing the investigation.
