FREEPORT, NY (CBS 2) – Two men face charges after police say a bar fight ended in a fatal crash in Freeport.

Investigators say a fight at the Phase Bar on Bayview Avenue poured out onto the street early Saturday morning.

Witnesses heard a gunshot then two men sped off in a Mitsubishi Galant. The car then plowed into a Dodge Intrepid, splitting it in half and killing the driver.

The driver of the Galant was charged with manslaughter. A passenger suffered a broken neck.

A bar bouncer was also arrested for allegedly hiding a gun.
