Suffolk County Police Fifth Squad detectives are investigating a motor vehicle crash that killed the operator of a quad in Ronkonkoma last night.

Lisa Delvecchio, age 25, of Whitman, in Plymouth County, Massachusetts, was driving a 2017 Chevrolet Cruz westbound on Marconi Avenue, when the vehicle was struck at the intersection of Lakeland Avenue by a northbound Honda 300EX quad, being operated by Brandon Niles, age 21, of Bohemia, Suffolk County Police said.
