SAYVILLE - Police are investigating a series of collisions in Sayville.

The accident left one dead, several injured and a man behind bars.

Police say that when they arrived on the scene Sunday evening, they found several cars scattered all over the road, two of them a mangled mess.

Officials report the the trouble began near the center of the village when the driver of an SUV struck another vehicle and continued west on Montauk Highway.

Police say they believe that there were at least four or five separate collisions culminating in a crash in front of 290 Main Street.

Authorities say the SUV driver's final crash killed an 83-year-old man. His 79-year-old female passenger suffered serious physical injuries and was transported to Southside Hospital.

The unidentified suspect is expected in court on Monday.
