Father, son killed in single-vehicle crash

A father and son were killed in a single-vehicle crash in East Farminglade.

Maharaj was pronounced dead at the scene. His son was rushed to a hospital, but didn't survive.

The vehicle was impounded for a safety check, but police are asking anyone who may have information about the crash to contact them at 631-854-8152.
