New Dorp, NY (June 6, 2019) – A crash resulted in serious injuries sustained by a driver/father and his two young girls, ages 8 and 10, on Wednesday night, June 5th. The accident was reported to have taken place at 9:36 p.m. on Hylan Boulevard.
According to police, 23-year-old Linesha Holder, of New Springville, was arrested and charged with aggravated unlicensed operation after the incident. The collision, which occurred at the intersection of Hylan Boulevard and Bryant Avenue, took place after Holder cut off the other vehicle.
