Police: 6-year-old critically injured in Massapequa crash has died
Police say a 6-year-old girl who was critically injured in a Massapequa crash that killed three others has died.
Police say Chantel Solomon, 6, of Uniondale, succumbed to her injured she sustained in the crash that happened last Sunday.
Solomon's mother says Chantel died while she held her hand this morning around 1:30 a.m.
"This is my only baby. I don't know what to do no more. I have nothing else left. I just got to accept that she's dead," said Divina Hamilton, Chantel's mom.
The crash also resulted in the deaths of 10-year-old Jeremiah Huntley, 13-year-old Hannah Huntley and their father Patrice Huntley.
The 32-year-old driver who police say caused the crash has been charged with three counts of vehicular homicide, among other charges.
Police say the driver, Michael Deangelo of Lindenhurst, reached a speed of 120 mph prior to impact.
Court documents say while in police custody, Deangelo admitted to taking heroin and other drugs prior to the crash.
Police say Deangelo had fentanyl and cocaine in his system. They also say they found a needle and pipe in his car.
Deangelo was arraigned from his hospital bed Friday afternoon while still receiving treatment for injuries he sustained in the crash.
Police say Deangelo would face additional charges if Chantel died.
