AMITYVILLE, N.Y. — Three people, including a father and a son, have been killed in a car wreck in suburban New York.

Suffolk County police say Alex Demetrius, of Nesconset, was driving east in Amityville around 12:30 a.m. Sunday when his car went into the opposite lanes and hit a westbound car.

The crash killed the 27-year-old Demetrius and the driver and a passenger in the other car: 65-year-old Joseph Cloonan and his 34-year-old son, John Cloonan, who both lived on Staten Island.

Bryan Cloonan tells Newsday his uncle Joseph was a married father of three who worked three jobs, including as a physical trainer, and played guitar in a band. He calls his uncle "larger than life."
