9A Crash with Multiple Injuries
At approximately 12:30 PM this afternoon, a small red car was speeding northbound on 9A, according to witnesses we interviewed at the scene. That speeding small red car made a bad maneuver as the red light on 9A changed from red to green. Because the driver of the red car was speeding, he pushed the dark blue car, shown in this photo, into the ConEd truck. The ConEd truck had three passengers sitting on the front bench seat. The ConEd truck had just started to move with the green light and was going no more than ten miles per hour when the blue car struck them.
Once the red car hit the dark blue car, the dark blue car slammed into the front of the ConEd truck. Two people from the red car, one from the green and one passenger from the Con Ed truck were taken to Westchester County Medical Center. Three ambulances assisted from Hawthorne Volunteer Ambulance Corps, Valhalla Volunteer Ambulance Corps and the all-volunteer Elmsford Fire Department. None of the injuries were reported to be life threatening.
