1 teen killed, 1 critical in Ronkonkoma crash

Police say a teen was killed and another is in critical condition after a pickup truck slammed into their BMW in Ronkonkoma.

Authorities say 17-year-old Eugene Franjola was killed in the Saturday night crash and his 16-year-old friend, Stephen Massina, is in critical condition.

The driver of the truck, 28-year-old David Heise, was arrested after police say he was driving with a revoked license. Heise's driver's license was suspended because he received three misdemeanor speeding tickets within an 18-month time period.

Franjola was set to graduate from Connetquot High School in May and wanted to be an actor and comedian, according to his father.
