The driver of a Ford Escape escaped serious injury after her vehicle overturned on Main Road in Aquebogue Tuesday afternoon, Riverhead Town police at the scene said.
The woman suffered minor lacerations to her left hand, police said, and was transported by Riverhead Ambulance volunteers to Peconic Bay Medical Center. Main Road was closed in both directions between Tuthills Lane and Colonial Drive as the Jamesport Fire Department worked to clear the scene.
The accident occurred shortly after 12:30 p.m. when the woman driving the Ford eastbound on Main Road collided with a Volvo that was attempting to turn from the eastbound lane into a driveway, police said.
The Volvo had four men inside who were also transported to PBMC as a precaution, police said.
