Valley Stream Man Sentenced for Fatal DWI Crash

A Valley Stream man was sentenced Monday to 12 years in prison without parole for causing the crash that killed a 46-year-old man in the victim’s hometown of Franklin Square last year.

Nassau County Judge Angelo Delligatti also sentenced Brian Daly to five years of post-release supervision.

Daly had pleaded guilty in March to second-degree manslaughter, depraved indifference assault, criminal possession of a controlled substance and driving while intoxicated.

Prosecutors said the 26-year-old man blew a red light at 70 mph in a 30-mph zone while drunk and high on cocaine when he broadsided a minivan driven by Christopher DeCrescito at the corner of Franklin and Corona avenues on Feb. 27, 2013.

Daly, who had more than a half ounce of cocaine at that time, was arrested immediately after the crash.

The victim left behind a wife and three children ages 12, 9 and 8.
