       An early-morning accident claimed the life of a 20-year old student from the Grant Campus yesterday.
      Anthony CiFuentes of 10 Pierre Drive, Commack, was driving southbound on Commack Road around 9:30 a.m when he swerved into a waste removal truck from the Town of Smithtown that was stopped at a red light in the northbound lane at New Highway. CiFuentes’ 1998 Nissan Altima then struck two other cars.
     He was airlifted to Stony Brook University Medical Center where he was pronounced dead about 11:15 a.m., according to police. No one else was injured.
     The Nissan Altima was impounded for a safety check. Motor Carrier Safety Section officers responded and completed a safety check of the other vehicles involved. The investigation is ongoing.
     Detectives with the Suffolk County Police Department are asking anyone with information on the crash to call the Fourth Squad at 631-854-8452.
