Aquebogue, NY (October 20, 2018) – Police say that one person was ejected from a Dodge Ram and another had to be extricated from a Tesla that crossed the double yellow lines on Thursday, October 18.
Police identified 77-year-old David Gordon as the driver of the Tesla, who was driving on Main Road when he suddenly went over the line and struck a Dodge being driven by 53-year-old Chris Hollborn. Hollborn was immediately ejected from his vehicle and airlifted to the Stony Brook University Hospital. At this time, he has been listed in critical condition due to serious head injuries.
Gordon was taken to the same hospital to be treated for injuries as well, but his were not life-threatening. Reconstruction teams have been taking a closer look at the accident since it occurred.
New York Head-on Collision
We want to first extend our condolences to those involved and we hope that Chris Hollborn is able to receive a complete and easy recovery following this serious accident. It can be difficult to be involved in an unexpected car accident and not know where to turn after you have received injuries that can have a huge impact on your life.
Head-on collisions happen for many reasons. Sometimes they take place due to drivers who are distracted or driving drunk on our roads. Other times, they happen due to a driver who is driving too fast for conditions and loses control. Lastly, they happen when drivers are not familiar with the roads or they are disobeying traffic signals at an intersection. No matter the reason, if you have been injured due to the negligence of another party, you have many rights in your case and we want to stand by your side.
At Hach & Rose, we want you to know that you do not have to stand alone when it comes to your personal injury case. Do not hesitate to reach us when it comes to your claim and where you can turn in your time of need at 212-779-0057.
