Long Island suffered a difficult road day on Tuesday, sustaining two accidents, as reported by a Newsday rundown.
The first crash occurred just after noon, at 12:30 pm, on Jericho Turnpike in Woodbury. An 82 year old woman was in a 1983 Buick heading west on Jericho Turnpike, when her car hit another westbound automobile, sending the automobile into the eastbound lane before hitting yet another vehicle. The woman did not survive the accident. According to police, the driver of the car, and 82 year old man, did not suffer life threatening injuries. The driver of another car also sustained nonlife-threatening injuries. Investigators could not yet find any apparent criminality.
A second accident occurred at 4:20 in the afternoon. A Honda was driving westbound along Lido Boulevard, Long Beach. The driver had exhibited wavering control before hitting a utility pole guide wire and driving into two other cars on the other side of the median. Emergency vehicles arrived immediately to pull victims out and place drivers and passengers on stretchers to take them to Long Beach Medical Center and South Nassau Communities Hospital. An investigation is ongoing.
