SHOREHAM, Long Island, N.Y. — The two motorists involved in a frightening head-on collision on Route 25A in Shoreham are lucky to be alive. The call for an accident with injuries went out to first responders around midnight. Upon arrival, first responders found three cars involved in the crash, and they soon learned that two of those cars collided head-on according to Long Island News 12. Investigators are still trying to figure out why one of the vehicles crossed over into oncoming traffic. However, authorities told Long Island News 12 that they will continue their investigation but do not suspect criminal activity at this time.
Police are trying to understand how the driver of a small silver sedan lost control and crossed into oncoming traffic on Route 25A, near Randall Road. The small silver vehicle crashed head-on into another vehicle, and a large pickup truck hit the rear of the second car. The two cars that collided head-on sustained massive damage. Neighbors interviewed by the press said that the sound of the collision was a tremendous “metal-on-metal” sound. Fortunately for the drivers of those cars that met head-on, neither person sustained any life-threatening injuries. A 30-year-old driver suffered serious injuries but was expected to survive. The driver of the other car sustained minor injuries. Both received transportation to a local hospital for treatment. The driver of the pickup truck was not injured. Officers declined to identify any of the people involved. However, video footage of the scene captured by Long Island News 12 depicted firefighters wheeling the 30-year-old man on a stretcher to a waiting ambulance.
Residents who travel Route 25A frequently say that something must be done about the escalating number of accidents occurring in the area. One person said that he thinks the town or state should install more traffic lights, or, if not, do something to reduce the dangerous conditions present on Route 25A.
