Cops: Man smashes car window after crash
Police say a driver involved in a fender bender lost his temper and smashed the window of the other car with a crowbar Tuesday.
Gina Riccardi says her 20-year-old daughter was hit from behind by 30-year-old Samuel Ekus, who was driving a Mazda on Sunrise Highway in Wantagh. Riccardi says Ekus smashed the back window of her daughter's Chevy after the crash and then tried to pull her daughter out of the car.
Ekus has been charged with driving while ability impaired by drugs, criminal possession of a controlled substance, criminal possession of a weapon, menacing and driving an uninsured motor vehicle.
