A 5-year-old boy has died the day after he was critically injured in a weekend crash in Shirley that Suffolk County police said was caused by a driver who was high on drugs.
The victim, whose name was not released, died Sunday at Stony Brook University Medical Center.
Police arrested 30-year-old Steven Kinalis of Ronkonkoma and charged him with driving while ability impaired by drugs.
Police said Kinalis was driving a Toyota Scion eastbound on Sunrise Highway when his vehicle rear-ended a Dodge pickup truck driven by Kevin Gaffney, 36, of West Islip.
The truck then left the road and struck a tree just east of William Floyd Parkway.
Gaffney’s wife, 7-year-old daughter and 2-year-old son were also treated at Stony Brook University Medical Center for non-life-threatening injuries.
A judge set his bail at $500,000 bond or $150,000 cash when he was arraigned Sunday at First District Court in Central Islip.
