Fort Wadsworth, NY (May 7, 2019) – Two people were hospitalized on Tuesday afternoon, May 7th, following a collision between multiple vehicles in the town of Fort Wadsworth. According to a spokesman for the FDNY, the accident took place around 2:00 p.m. on Lyman Avenue in the vicinity of Bay Street and involved at least five vehicles.
