We were at a red light. A commercial van side swiped 2 cars then hit the 3rd on the left end of the car turning the car towards the right, the both cars hit the last car. It was very scary. The 1st car that was hit had a newborn an toddler which seemed to be ok. The driver of the van was a white male in his 20's. Either he fell asleep or under the influence because he did not try to stop.

The accident happened at 3:30 pm, at the corner of glen cove rd and glen head rd. My father's car was hit first from behind by the van, it started a chain reaction that affected the 3 or 4 vehicles in front of him. The authorities had to break into his car to get him out because the drivers side was smashed-in. The van driver must've been inebriated or sleeping at the wheel. My father was rushed to Manhasset Hospital as well as others involved in the accident. Authorities said that 7-8 people were involved in the accident. Van driver was completely unharmed.

He's still recovering, hopefully everything will work out for him. He said there were no cars behind him only in front, and three more on the left lane which were also affected. When he looked at the rear view mirror he saw the van approaching at a ridiculous speed, it was only a matter of seconds till the van rammed into him. The impact made him a bit unconscious, but that's what he remembers. I guess the police report will have the final say in this.
