    A Long Island woman is accused of leaving the scene of an accident that killed a man and injured three other people, police said Saturday.

    Kathy Horan, 61, of Medford, was driving east on Granny Road in Medford at about 8:20 p.m. Friday when her small SUV crashed into a group of people who had been involved in an earlier traffic accident, according to Suffolk County police.

    Peter Quoma, 28, of Seldon, was struck and killed by Horan's vehicle, investigators said. He had stepped out of his car after hitting a parked car.

    Two passengers, who were sitting in Quoma's car, were injured when it was struck by Horan's SUV, police said. They were taken to Stony Brook University Hospital and treated for minor injuries.

    A 58-year-old woman, who was standing at the earlier accident scene, was also struck by Horan's SUV and was taken to Brookhaven Memorial Hospital with serious injuries, police said. It was her parked car that had been hit by Quoma's car.

    Horan, who wasn't injured, was charged with leaving the scene of a fatal accident and leaving the scene of an accident that caused serious injury.

    There was no indication that she had obtained a lawyer who could comment on the charges.
