A two-vehicle collision shut down parts of Park Avenue at around 3:15 p.m. Tuesday, sending one vehicle tumbling across the roadway at Litchfield Avenue.
The Babylon Fire Department and Suffolk County Police Department responded to the accident at the intersection of Park and Litchfield Avenues at around 3:15 p.m.
According to eyewitnesses at the scene, a silver Ford Expedition was traveling westbound on Park Avenue when a tan Jeep Liberty entered the roadway heading northbound on Litchfield Avenue. The Ford slammed into the side of the Jeep, sending the SUV tumbling into a guardrail along the side of a property on the northwest corner.
The Jeep landed on its driver's side against the guardrail and its driver remained trapped until the Babylon Fire Department helped force the twisted plastic and metal away from its occupant.
The two-vehicles sustained heavy damage, with the Ford losing much of its front bumper and the Jeep being completely totalled.
Surprisingly, the occupants of each car were seemingly able to walk away from the crash without noticeable injury. The driver of the Jeep was taken away in an ambulance.
We'll have more on this story as details about the drivers' conditions become available.
