CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y. (AP) - A New York City real estate executive is facing upgraded charges in a hit-and-run car crash in the Hamptons this summer that killed a passenger.

Suffolk County prosecutors say Sean Ludwick pleaded not guilty Monday to a 13 count indictment charging him with aggravated vehicular homicide, driving while intoxicated and other crimes.

Police say Ludwick was arrested Aug. 30 in Sag Harbor after he lost control of his 2013 Porsche and struck a utility pole. His passenger, 53-year-old Paul Hansen of Sag Harbor, died.

Prosecutors say his car was found a quarter of a mile from the crash site. He had originally been charged with DWI and leaving the scene of an accident.

Ludwick is a managing partner and founder of Blackhouse Development in Manhattan.
