Two people – including a four-year-old child – were sent to area hospitals following a two-car accident on Roanoke Avenue Tuesday afternoon.

A black Volkswagen Jetta traveling southbound on Edwards Avenue collided with a gold Toyota Corolla by the intersection on Sound Avenue about 4:40 p.m., authorities said.

The driver of the Volkswagen was transported to Peconic Bay Medical Center with facial injures, while the child, who was a passenger in the Toyoya, was transported to St. Charles Hospital in Port Jefferson as a precaution, said Riverhead Volunteer Ambulance Corps chief Joey Oliver.
