Two women were sent to the hospital Sunday afternoon following a two-car crash in Calverton, which knocked one passenger out of her vehicle, Wading River fire officials said.
A gray Saturn Ion was turning left into the Bean and Bagel Cafe parking lot when it was struck by a Jeep Cherokee driving west on Route 25, police at the scene said. A passenger in the Saturn rolled out of the vehicle when the force of the collision broke the door handle to the rear passenger door, authorities said.
Wading River firefighters were called to the scene with a heavy rescue truck, but it was not needed. The woman who was ejected from the Saturn and a woman in the Jeep were both hospitalized, said Wading River fire chief Jim Evans.
The woman in the Saturn was taken to Peconic Bay Medical Center, while the passenger from the Jeep was taken to Stony Brook University hospital, fire officials said.
