Rich Real Estate Developer Tries to Leave Scene of Drunken Car Crash

Wealthy Manhattan real estate developer, Sean Ludwick, was arrested early Sunday in Sag Harbor. The 42-year-old was arraigned on Monday in a Southampton town court on a misdemeanor DWI charge and a felony count of leaving the scene of a fatal crash where his friend was killed after being ejected from the vehicle.

Southampton police say Ludwick was driving a 2013 Porsche around 2 a.m. when he lost control and hit a pole. Father-of-two, Paul Hansen was fatally ejected from the Porsche in front of his own home. The 53-year-old Sag Harbor realtor was pronounced dead at the scene at the home where he lived with his wife and sons aged 11 and 13. Ludwick then left Hansen in front of the home and kept driving on two flat tires and other damage. Police stopped Ludwick down the road. John

Barrett, 58, told the New York Post: “Some of these people are so rich, and they’re driving around in their fancy toys, in this case, a Porsche, and they just want to show off. It’s not unheard of in this part of the island. I’ve almost gotten killed by drivers who are going way too fast in this neighborhood alone. It’s extremely dangerous.” Ludwick is expected to post $500,000 bail. Last year, Ludwick was accused of breaking into his ex girlfriend's Tribeca apartment in a drunken rage and painting pornographic images on artwork after she allegedly cheated on him.
