HAUPPAUGE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – New charges have been filed against a Suffolk County man accused of causing a fatal car crash while high on prescription and illegal drugs.
Thomas Herman of Patchogue is facing charges of second degree murder and aggravated vehicular homicide among a slew of other counts, Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota announced.
Spota announced the 24-count indictment on Thursday.
“He was high on PCP, morphine, Xanax and oxycodone,” Spota told reporters including WCBS 880’s Ginny Kosola. “The amount of oxycodone he took alone would have impaired his ability to drive a car.”
