ISLIP, NY – State Police have released details on a crash last week that ended with a Mercedes perched on a telephone pole. Two men face felony drug charges.
According to police, troopers attempted to pull over a 2014 Mercedes-Benz ML350 that was going 105 mph on the eastbound Southern State Parkway, west of Route 111, around 1:25 p.m. on March 11.
The driver of the Mercedes, 21-year-old Stanley Joiner, attempted to flee and after a short pursuit off the parkway, Joiner lost control of the car and crashed at the intersection of Spur Drive South and Broadway in Islip, police said. The car became immobilized on a telephone pole guy-wire .
Joiner and 20-year-old Starrief Green jumped out of the car and fled on foot, police said.
I have to say you can not set a car better on a pole talking about perfection.
Joiner was quickly taken into custody by the pursuing trooper in a nearby backyard and Green was apprehended by a Suffolk Police K-9 officer in a backyard following a neighborhood search, police said. An investigation determined Joiner and Green, both of Wyandanch, were in possession of heroin, cocaine and fentanyl, police said.
