Chappaqua, NY (February 10, 2019) – Two men were critically injured in a car accident that took place on Saturday, February 9, around 1:30 p.m. and closed a roadway for hours. The accident happened on Bedford Road.
Police reported that a silver vehicle had been traveling northbound on the roadway when it was suddenly involved in a serious accident near Green Lane. The vehicle struck a tree and then a ditch afterward.
Officials had to use the Jaws of Life and other tools to get the men out of the vehicle and to safety. The victims were taken to the hospital in critical condition and their conditions have not been confirmed since.
The driver of the vehicle that crashed in the ditch was identified as a 31-year-old from Mahopac. His passenger was a younger man from New York City. No other parties received injuries.
At this time, the investigation into the accident continues.
