WOODBURY - A four-car crash in Hauppauge critically injured an East Northport man.

The accident happened at the intersection of Veterans Memorial and New highways.

Police say Anthony Barbato was driving his pickup truck eastbound on Veterans Memorial Highway when he slammed into John Purstell's Dodge while Purstell was stopped at a light.

The crash triggered a chain-reaction crash involving two more cars.

Purstell was airlifted to Stony Brook Hospital in critical condition. The three other drivers were treated for minor injuries.

Officials say sun glare may be to blame.
