Long Island Traffic Accident Leaves One Fatality

A traffic accident on Long Island left a fatal toll; four people were killed and nine others were injured.

Four people were killed and nine others were injured after a vehicle crashed into a nail salon inside a Long Island shopping center, authorities said.

The Long Island traffic accident occurred shortly before 5 p.m. Friday, June 28, on Grand Boulevard in Deer Park, authorities said, when the minivan crashed into Hawaii Nail & Spa.

According to information handled by local media, the traffic accident on Long Island was caused by a vehicle crashing through the front of the beauty business and nearly coming out the other side.

A fire official indicated that it may have crashed at high speed.

Four Dead: Long Island Traffic Accident Leaves One Fatality

Four people were pronounced dead at the scene, according to Deer Park Deputy Fire Chief Dominic Albanese.

Nine other people suffered injuries, some of which were considered serious. One of the injured was airlifted to a nearby hospital.

The driver was among those taken to the hospital, Albanese said, adding that others were trapped in the saloon and had to be extricated before being taken to the hospital.


Witnesses said the vehicle drove through a parking lot across the street, apparently in a hurry to get out of there.

The driver then went around another car that was stopped at a traffic light and, as the van attempted to turn onto Grand Boulevard, flew directly into the salon.

It has not been determined whether the Long Island traffic accident was intentional or not, nor was it known how many people were in the vehicle at the time.

The ages of the victims were not immediately available and Albanese could not confirm if children were among the victims.

About 150 firefighters and emergency medical personnel responded to the incident.
