On August 12, 2023, in Laurel Hollow, a devastating car crash resulted in the tragic loss of a couple from Syosset, Nassau County has reported. Sotirios Spanos, a 33-year-old man from Syosset, has entered a guilty plea to aggravated vehicular homicide charges following the high-velocity collision that claimed the lives of 37-year-olds Ismenia and Odalis Urena.

The fatal incident occurred after midnight when Spanos, under the influence of alcohol and driving at speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour, veered into opposing traffic on Northern Boulevard and collided with the Urenas’ convertible. Prosecutors indicated that upon sentencing in June, Spanos could face a prison term of 7 to 21 years.
