Drivers in Smithtown head-on crash treated for non-life-threatening injuries
Smithtown, NY (SmithownRadio.com) – Two area drivers were treated for non-life-threatening injuries when their vehicles collided head-on on Main Street in Smithtown last week.
As we reported Friday, the two vehicles collided on West Main Street at Karl Avenue around 10 a.m. Suffolk police say a 34-year-old East Northport woman was driving a 2011 Lexus west on Route 25A when she was struck by a 2000 Nissan driven by an 84-year-old female driver from Smithtown.
The Smithtown woman was traveling eastbound on Main Street when she attempted to make a left onto Karl Avenue, police say. After the collision, the Lexus struck a building located at 35 Main Street.
“We heard the crash, felt the building shake and ran outside,” says Karen Arthus who works in the building. “I looked out my window, her car swerved across Main Street and went up the curb in front of the veterans park. I couldn’t see the other car since it was under my window after it hit the building.”
Arthus says building damage appears minimal with the storefront for Mufson Medical taking the brunt of the damage.
Both drivers were taken to Saint Catherine of Sienna where they were treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
Arthus works for Sunrise Business Services, which is a supporter of SmithtownRadio.com.
