Pedestrian Accident Seriously Injures Long Island Man


A pedestrian-car accident seriously injured a 46-year-old man on New York Avenue in Huntington. He was hit by a car early Sunday morning as he tried to cross the street near East 12th Street. He was taken to Huntington Hospital by the Community First Aid Squad.

The driver of the car, a Toyota Scion, was not hurt and remained at the scene. The car was impounded by police for a safety inspection. Police continue to investigate and are seeking witnesses. Anyone who saw the crash is urged to call the Second Squad.

The accident happened near the same corner where an August 4 hit-and-run killed another pedestrian, a 25-year-old man. The 27-year-old driver of that car was later identified by law enforcement and he was charged with leaving the scene of an accident.

Remarkably, that crash was one of two hit-and-run pedestrian-car accidents in Huntington that August weekend. Another occurred on East Jericho Turnpike near Manor Road, leaving the 31-year-old victim seriously injured after he was struck by a car.
