The Mattituck High School lacrosse coach was the man arrested for driving while intoxicated after striking and injuring a teen bicyclist with his vehicle late Friday night on the Peconic River bridge and fleeing the scene, according to Riverhead police.

Police said the collision took place in the southbound lane of the Route 105 bridge just after 10:30 p.m., injuring 16-year-old Juan Moreno of Flanders, who was found at the scene with injuries.

State police later found the driver, Timothy Corcoran of Babylon, 43, at the Riverside McDonald’s on Route 24. He was taken to Riverhead police headquarters and charged with drunk driving and leaving the scene of an accident, police said. His vehicle was impounded.

Mr. Corcoran, who is not a teacher in the district, resigned Saturday as Mattituck High School’s varsity lacrosse coach, officials said.

An update on the teen’s condition wasn’t available Wednesday.
