A 58-year-old woman was killed when an alleged speeder crashed his vehicle into hers in her hometown of East Meadow on Monday night, Nassau County police said.
Justin M. Daley, 28, of Hicksville, was allegedly speeding in his 2003 Nissan Sentra heading eastbound on Hempstead Turnpike when he rear-ended the victim’s Honda at 11:40 p.m., police said.
The victim, Ming Deng, was taken to Nassau University Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead shortly later.
Daley continued driving east on Hempstead Turnpike and eventually came to rest east of Conti Square Boulevard, where he was arrested at the scene and taken to an area hospital. He was being treated for a leg injury, police said.
Homicide Squad detectives impounded both vehicles and are continuing the investigation.
Daley was charged with second-degree manslaughter, reckless endangerment and reckless driving. He will be arraigned as soon as medically possible, police said.
