What happened to Dylan Nuccio?
Dylan Nuccio was involved in a deadly crash which claimed his life. According to the reports, the accident happened on Tuesday, January 2, 2024, on the Seaford Oyster Bay Expressway, North Massapequa, Long Island, New York.
Law enforcement agencies arrived at the scene and discovered a 2019 BMW on its side. The vehicle appeared to have veered off the roadway and landed in the woods, striking a tree. According to the Police, they found a 17-year-old in a vehicle that went off the road and hit a tree at around 10:30 a.m. on the ramp to 135 North. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the vehicle was later identified as Dylan Nuccio, a 17-year-old Plainedge High School senior, as identified by Superintendent Ed Salina in a letter to families.
According to a source, the teenager who lost his life in the fatal crash was on lunch break. In the wake of the heart-wrenching incident, the superintendent announced that high school students are not permitted to leave the school for lunch until further notice.
The Police, however, did not identify if the victim in the crash was the same student identified by the superintendent. An investigation is underway to learn more about the circumstances that led to the tragic incident.
