Cops ID 2 Men Killed in Hicksville Crash

Nassau County police have identified the teenager and 26-year-old man who were both killed when their vehicles collided in Hicksville last week.

Kashyan Patel, 17, of Hicksville, was driving an Acura westbound on Old Country Road when he collided with a Volkswagon driven by Nicholas Zarzana of Mount Sinai, who was making a left turn out of Antun’s Catering at 11:37 p.m. Monday, Dec. 22, police said.

Zarzana was pronounced dead at the scene, as was Patel, whose vehicle skidded across the road and struck a tree, police said.

Two passengers in the Volkswagon were taken to a local hospital, where they were treated for their injuries..
