A Farmingville man who was seriously injured in a motorcycle crash in Mattituck earlier this month died soon after the accident, Maloney Funeral Homes in Lake Ronkonkoma said.
Michael Lourine, 33, was heading west on Main Road at 5:50 p.m. on Sept. 8 when he lost control of his 2006 Kawasaki while making a turn and struck a curb, Southold Town police said. He hit his head on a utility pole during the crash and was taken to Peconic Bay Medical Center for treatment, where he died that same day.
A funeral mass was held Sept. 13 at St. Mary’s R.C. Church in East Islip.
Mr. Lourine, a New York City firefighter, was honored on FDNY Medal Day 2007 for his heroics with a team of other firefighters from Ladder Co. 105 in Brooklyn.
A makeshift memorial of flowers, ribbons and a framed photograph of Mr. Lourine have been placed at the site of the crash, next to Mattituck Presbyterian Church.
