PLAINVIEW, N.Y. (AP) - Police say a 21-year-old man has died after his car was struck by another vehicle on the Long Island Expressway.

Nassau County police say it happened around 2 a.m. Saturday in Plainview.

Authorities say George Ragotte was attempting to avoid an accident on the expressway when he slowed down and was struck by another vehicle.

Ragotte’s car was hit by a sedan driven by 34-year-old Raj Jadeja (jah-DAY’-jah), of Brooklyn. Jadeja suffered minor injuries.

He was arrested on vehicular manslaughter, reckless driving and DWI charges.

Police say he is scheduled to be arraigned Sunday.

It was not immediately clear whether Jadeja had an attorney who could comment on his behalf.
