    It happened just before 2 a.m. Saturday, June 8, in Medford.

    A tractor-trailer was traveling northwest on Horseblock Road and attempting to make a left turn onto Express Drive North when it was struck by a 2008 BMW, Suffolk County Police said.

    The driver of the BMW fled on foot.

    A passenger in the BMW, Hedilberto Nava Perez, age 44, of Medford, was pronounced dead at the scene by a physician assistant from the Office of the Suffolk County Medical Examiner.

    Another passenger, Adan Nava Palacios, age 20, of Medford, is at Stony Brook University Hospital, with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

    Following an investigation, Major Case Unit detectives said Dolores Mancia-Landaverde was driving the BMW.

    Mancia-Landaverde, age 28, of Medford, was charged with leaving the scene of an incident involving a fatality.

    He is being held at the Sixth Precinct and is scheduled to be arraigned at First District Court in Central Islip on Tuesday, June 11.

    The driver of the tractor-trailer was not injured.
