Wantagh Man, 60, Killed in Crash

A 60-year-old Wantagh man was killed Sunday morning when his car veered into another lane and struck another vehicle in his hometown, Nassau County police said.

The victim, Preston Stockman, was driving a white 1996 Toyota Camry east on Jerusalem Avenue at 8:50 a.m. when his vehicle entered the westbound lane and hit a white Buick. Police have yet to determine what caused the vehicle to enter the opposite lane.

Stockman was transported to Nassau University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. The 57-year-old driver of the Buick was hospitalized for minor injuries, police said.

Police removed both vehicles from the scene for brake and safety inspections. Investigators say they believe at this time there is no criminality.
