MANORVILLE, N.Y. – The death toll in a morning multi-car crash on the Long Island Expressway has risen to six after one of the victims, a 71-year-old woman, succumbed to her injuries Monday afternoon, Suffolk County police said.

The collision happened at about 9:35 a.m. on the LIE, near Exit 68 in Manorville, according to police.

Carmelo Pinales, 26, was driving a gray Subaru Outback eastbound on the LIE when he apparently lost control of the vehicle which crossed over the grassy median, went airborne and struck two cars, a BMW and a Honda, which were traveling westbound near Exit 68, police said.

Pinales and his sister Patricia Pinales, 27, were pronounced dead at the scene. Carmelo’s 10-year-old son, Christopher Pinales, was taken to a local hospital, where he perished.

Scott Martella, 29, the driver of the Honda was pronounced dead. He was a former aide to Governor Andrew Cuomo.

“I extend my deepest condolences to the family and friends of those lost in the accident that occurred on Sunday morning on the Long Island Expressway,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a statement Sunday. “While we are still learning more, at least three souls were killed and eight more injured in this terrible tragedy.”

Isidore Adelson, 81, and his wife Helen Adelson, 71, were taken to local hospitals, where the older Adelson perished.

Police said Monday that Helen, 71, succumbed to her injuries.

Five more people were hospitalized with non-life threatening conditions, police said.

Detectives are investigating reports that Pinales was traveling at a high rate of speed.
