Officials say Fedden was also involved in another accident on New Highway, just one hour before he crashed into the building. A witness says police checked over Fedden on the scene, before driving him to his house in Commack.

Police say it is still unclear what caused Fedden to crash into the building. Eyewitnesses tell News 12 they saw Fedden driving at least 100 mph.

The 29-year-old was airlifted to Stony Brook University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
