A Nassau County officer will not face charges following a deadly crash in Massapequa, according to officials.
The move comes after an investigation by the attorney general’s office.
As News 12 has reported, 102-year-old Morrise Sprachman, of Seaford, died days after the December 2022 crash.
Officer Mario Pollio was driving on Hicksville Road responding to an emergency call when his car collided with Sprachman’s.
The officer had a green light and Sprachman was making a left turn into a shopping center.
The New York Attorney General’s Officer says the officer was driving more than 20 miles over the speed limit, however under state law, officers are able to exceed speed limits in emergency situations.
The attorney general must investigate all cases where law enforcement officers may have caused a death.
