One person was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries Tuesday after the pickup truck he was driving was broadsided by a Hummer SUV.
The Hummer's driver, a minor, was released to the custody of his father following the accident, which occurred around 3:45 p.m., according to Glen Cove EMS chief Matt Venturino.
Bill Bliss, who lives around the corner on Glen Cove Ave., said he heard the collision and went to the intersection of Pearl St. and Valentine Ave., where he found the white pickup truck on its side.
He and another civilian tried getting the driver, who was conscious, out of the window, but were unsuccessful. Bliss said the driver was trying to kick out the front windshield.
"We were worried the car would go on fire," Bliss said. "He was like, 'Just get me the [expletive deleted] outta here.'"
Bliss said the driver of the Hummer was still in his vehicle.
"He was buggin' out, you know? In shock," he said.
Venturino said the Hummer's driver refused medical attention.
The pickup's driver, also a minor, was freed through the front of the vehicle once the windshield was removed by members of the Glen Cove Volunteer Fire Department.
Several Glen Cove Police units were at the scene as well.
