New Springville, NY – Two Injured After Crash into House on Merrymount Street
New Springville, NY (April 19, 2019) – Two people were reported to have sustained injuries, one seriously, after a vehicle went off a roadway, subsequently crashing into a tree and a house on Thursday night, April 18th. According to authorities, the incident took place around 8:20 p.m. when the vehicle involved crashed into the home located at 227 Merrymount Street for reasons that have not been determined.
At this time, police are unsure of how many vehicles were involved in the accident as one other car was at the scene but removed shortly after the crash. The vehicle that went off the road struck the tree first and only damaged the railing of the home. Emergency medical crews along with the FDNY and NYPD were dispatched to the scene where responders had to cut away the vehicle to remove the driver.
An FDNY spokesman stated that both occupants of the known vehicle were taken to Staten Island University Hospital in Ocean Breeze where one is being treated for serious but non-life-threatening injuries. The other party is believed to have sustained only minor injuries. An investigation into the cause of the crash and the possible involvement of a second vehicle is currently being conducted.
