Driver arrested in fatal crash involving stolen dirt bike”

Police say Bouchard had spotted the two men riding his brother's dirt bike, which had been reported stolen.

The operator of the dirt bike, Keenen King, of Shirley, was pronounced dead at the scene.

'The driver of the minivan spotted his bike and he attempted to obtain the dirt bike, ' Suffolk Police Commissioner Timothy Sini told NBC. The passenger of the dirt bike, Anthony Holmes-Garriques, 20, of North Bellport, was transported by South Country Ambulance to Brookhaven Memorial Hospital Medical Center and later transported to Stony Brook University Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

Bouchard was arrested after the crash at 10:15 a.m. Thursday on Montauk.

Witnesses said the van slammed into the bike head-on, sending both men flying. A passenger in the van was also taken into custody.

Christopher Bouchard, the driver, was arrested.

Commissioner Sini said that there is no evidence whatsoever that the ordeal was a hate crime.

Detectives say it all began just after 7 a.m. Thursday when officers were called for a report of a dirt bike stolen from a detached garage in Mastic Beach.

"Take two lives, for what? They posted it on Facebook - (they said): 'We know where y'all at, and we're coming to get you all, '" Smith said.

He's to be arraigned on Friday. Authorities didn't specify whether they thought the crash was intentional or not.
