North Babylon Man Killed While Fleeing Police

A North Babylon man was killed in a car crash while fleeing from Suffolk County police early Sunday morning.

John Ricciardi was pulled over by police on Outlook Drive in North Babylon  but when the officer approached Ricciardi’s vehicle, the 49-year-old man drove off, blowing three stop signs at 4:15 a.m., police said.

Ricciardi allegedly lost control of the vehicle after about one mile, struck a retaining wall and crashed into a utility pole at the intersection of Little East Neck Road and Belmont Avenue in West Babylon, police said.


Ricciardi was pronounced dead at the scene. His vehicle was impounded for a safety check and the investigation is ongoing.
