Man Critical After Sea Cliff Ave. Crash

Elderly driver taken to hospital by helicopter.

A man was listed in critical condition Wednesday following a two-car accident on Sea Cliff Ave. at around 9:45 a.m.

The accident is under investigation, but early indications are that an 83-year-old Sea Cliff man pulled around a woman stopped at a stop sign on Center Street and drove into the intersection with Sea Cliff Ave. 

The man's Subaru was struck by a white truck, which veered left and crashed through a bush and into a tree. The Subaru was knocked down Sea Cliff Ave. several dozen feet. 

The Subaru's driver was partially ejected through the driver's side window. He was treated for major trauma at the scene and was airlifted by a Nassau County Police helicopter from the parking lot of the former Coles School to Nassau University Medical Center, said Glen Cove EMS Chief Matthew Venturino.

The man's condition was reported as critical but stabilizing as of 12 p.m., according to Glen Cove Police Chief William Whitton, who was among the responders at the scene.

The truck's two occupants were not seriously hurt. The passenger, a woman, complained of some neck pain, Whitton said. She was transported to Glen Cove Hospital to be evaluated.

The Glen Cove Volunteer Fire Department and Glenwood Fire Company also responded to the accident.
