GIANNA VOLPE PHOTO | The crash scene Friday night.

A two-car crash at the corner of Doctors Path and Middle Road in Riverhead sent at least one woman to an area hospital in an ambulance Friday night.

A white pickup truck and black Nissan sedan both damaged their front ends in the 7:30 p.m. crash.

Riverhead Town police officers on the scene declined to comment on the cause of the accident — or the state of the passengers involved.

Nancy Guerra, who lives on Middle Road, said she ran outside after hearing a loud sound.

“I heard the woman say, ‘I’m sorry,’” she said.
