He also faces a misdemeanor charge of unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle. Jones, of Deer Park, will be arraigned in First District Court in Central Islip on Saturday.
The crash on Deer Park Avenue Thursday afternoon involved an SUV and three motorcycles. The motorcyclist who initially rear-ended the SUV, Travis Lovett, of Brentwood, was in critical condition after the crash, but police told Patch Friday night that Lovett, 20, is expected to survive.
A Babylon woman and her granddaughter in the SUV were treated at Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center for non-life threatening injuries. Another motorcyclist involved in the crash, Stanley Severe, 22, of Deer Park, did not receive medical treatment. Severe remained on the scene after the accident and spoke with police.
