    A New York City real estate executive has been arraigned on drunken driving charges following a deadly car crash in the Hamptons. 

    Police say Sean Ludwick was arrested early Sunday in Sag Harbor. Suffolk County prosecutors say Ludwick was arraigned Monday in Southampton town court on a misdemeanor DWI charge and a felony count of leaving the scene of a fatal crash.

    A district attorney says his car was found a quarter of a mile from the crash site. He was expected to post $500,000 bail.

    Defense attorney Daniel Ollen declined to comment on the charges.

    Southampton police say the 42-year-old Ludwick was driving a 2013 Porsche at about 2 a.m. when he lost control and hit a utility pole.

    His passenger, 53-year-old Paul Hansen of Sag Harbor, was pronounced dead at the scene.

    Ludwick is a managing partner and founder of Blackhouse Development in Manhattan.
