According to law enforcement authorities with Nassau County, a 28-year-old man who the highway patrol attempted to pull over for speeding on the Long Island Expressway fled. The man reportedly missed his turn while he was fleeing and crashed into a veterinary clinic.
As with every other state in the nation, it is illegal to drive in New York without a valid driver's license. However, there is a distinction made between driving a vehicle without having proof of a license and driving a vehicle with no valid license. Operating a vehicle with the knowledge that one's license is invalid in some way, such as being suspended, is a more serious offense.
