Cops: Man Dies After Crashing into Huntington House

A 49-year-old Syosset man died Friday night after his car left the road and slammed into a house in Huntington, Suffolk County police said.

James A. Spillane was driving a 2001 Nissan Pathfinder west on Woodhull Road at 11:38 p.m., when the vehicle veered to the left, traveled across a lawn and crashed into the northeast corner of the house, police said.

Spillane was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. A preliminary investigation by the Suffolk County Medical Examiner’s office indicated that Spillane may have suffered a medical emergency prior to leaving the road. Police did not elaborate.

The crash caused minor damage to the house, police said. None of the residents was injured.

The Pathfinder was impounded for a safety check. Detectives ask anyone with information on the crash to call the Second Squad at 631-854-8252.
