Suffolk County Police First Squad detectives are investigating a two-car crash that killed a pizza delivery driver in West Babylon on Wednesday.

 

Michelle Cordovano was driving a 2012 Jeep Liberty northbound on Bergen Avenue when the vehicle crossed into the southbound lane, striking a 2015 Toyota Prius being driven by Carlos Mora head-on at approximately 4:30 p.m. Mora was making a delivery for Gino’s Pizza of Babylon, located at 258 Deer Park Ave., at the time of the crash.

 

Mora, 49, of Babylon, was pronounced dead at the scene by a paramedic from West Babylon Rescue Ambulance. A physician assistant from the Office of the Suffolk County Medical Examiner also responded to the scene.

 

Cordovano, 28, of West Babylon, and a female passenger were transported via ambulance to Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center in West Islip with non-life-threatening injuries. Cordovano was charged with driving with a suspended license and is scheduled to appear at First District Court in Central Islip at a later date.

 

 

A criminal charge is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
