Coram Man Charged With Fatal DWI Crash

A Coram man has been arrested for allegedly driving drunk and causing a crash that killed a 28-year-old man and injured another in Deer Park five weeks ago, Suffolk County police said.

Stephan Harbison was charged Friday with vehicular manslaughter, vehicular assault and driving while intoxicated.

Police said the 27-year-old suspect was driving an Infiniti southbound on Straight Path when the vehicle left the road and struck a tree south of Sagamore Lane at 4:30 a.m. Monday, Jan. 26.

One of his passengers, Hamzah Abdul-Hakim, of Wyandanch, was trapped in the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene. The other, 28-year-old Ismail Latif, also of Wyandanch, was hospitalized in critical condition.

Harbison, who previously told police that his name was Darnell Snell, was airlifted to Stony Brook University Hospital in critical condition.

Harbison will be arraigned Saturday at First District Court in Central Islip.
