Suffolk County police say 54-year-old Thomas Stavola, of Setauket, was driving an Audi northbound when he struck a Mercedes going westbound.

Stavola was treated for minor injuries.

He was arrested on a charge of driving while intoxicated.

Stavola is scheduled to be arraigned in First District Court in Central Islip on Sunday.
