A funeral for the Uber driver killed in a head-on collision in Quogue was held Wednesday.
Farhan Zahid, a father of three, was driving four passengers when his car was hit by a Nissan Maxima.
Three of his four passengers were also killed, as well as the driver of the Nissan Maxima, Justin Mendez.
Police released new details Tuesday saying that officers found marijuana in the wreckage of the Nissan Maxima.
