Bay Shore Woman Killed in Crash

A 28-year-old Bay Shore woman was killed and a man was injured in a chain-reaction crash in Holbrook over the New Year’s holiday weekend.

Suffolk County police said Melisa Umanzor was driving westbound on Sunrise Highway when her car crashed head-on with a Honda that had rear-ended a Toyota and a Nissan, spun around and came to a rest facing eastbound near exit 50 at 5 a.m. Saturday.

Umanzor was taken to Brookhaven Memorial Hospital Medical Center in East Patchogue, where she was pronounced dead. The driver of the Honda was treated for minor injuries. The drivers of the Nissan and Toyota were not injured.

Fifth Squad detectives impounded the vehicles, are continuing the investigation and ask anyone with information to call them at 631-854-8552.
