Deer Park man pleads guilty in crash that injured postal worker

November 13, 2017

The Deer Park man who Suffolk prosecutors have said drove recklessly and struck a postal worker in April has pleaded guilty to all charges for which he had been indicted, county authorities and his attorney said Monday.

Stefano Belloisi, 52, of John Place is scheduled to be sentenced to four years in prison by State Supreme Court Justice Fernando Camacho on Dec. 14, eight months after he veered off the road and drove a 1998 Lincoln Continental into a postal worker standing at the rear of his mail truck in North Babylon, according to a news release issued by Suffolk District Attorney Thomas Spota.

The car had also struck the mail truck, a fire hydrant and a telephone pole, officials said.

The victim, a 40-year-old Bayport man, suffered severe leg injuries and was treated at Stony Brook University Hospital.

 Belloisi pleaded guilty Monday to second-degree assault, second-degree vehicular assault, reckless driving, driving while ability impaired on drugs or alcohol and criminal possession of a controlled substance, said his attorney, David Besso of Bay Shore.
