GREENPORT, N.Y. (AP) - A Long Island man faces DWI charges in connection with a wrong-way crash that killed a passenger in another vehicle.

Southold police say 71-year-old John Costello was driving a pickup truck east on Route 25 on Saturday when he crossed into the westbound lane striking a Honda.

Bartolone Miguel, of Peconic, a passenger in the car, was pronounced dead at a hospital.

It wasn’t immediately known if Costello had a lawyer.
