Commack, NY (January 13, 2019) – A man from Ronkonkoma lost his life early this morning, January 13, after a vehicle he had been a passenger in overturned in a fatal car accident.
The man who lost his life has since been identified as 32-year-old Steven Sarvis. He was initially taken to the Siena Medical Center but was tragically pronounced deceased while there. The driver, on the other hand, was identified as 48-year-old Patrick McMahon. He was charged with driving while intoxicated.
McMahon became involved in an accident after he had been driving drunk, which caused him to strike a driveway pillar and overturn the vehicle that Sarvis was a passenger in. His vehicle ended up on the front lawn of a home.
One other person was injured in the accident but they have not been identified by police. McMahon was also taken to the hospital for injuries but was then arrested by police.
