A limousine driver making a U-turn in Long Island wine country when his car was hit by a pickup truck has been indicted on criminally negligent homicide in the death of four of his passengers.
Prosecutors say 58-year-old Carlos Pino will be arraigned Wednesday afternoon in Central Islip.
The limousine was leaving a winery in Cutchogue when it was struck by the truck in July 2015. Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota says the limo driver’s sight was blocked by a car that was turning in front of him. He says Pino is solely responsible for the crash.
The pickup truck driver, Steven Romeo, was charged with driving while intoxicated.
