Two West Babylon brothers were seriously injured in a crash in Commack Tuesday evening, police said.
The accident occurred around 5:10 p.m. at the intersection of Motor Parkway and Moreland Road, where the traffic light was not working due to the storm, police said.
Tyler Smith, 18, and his brother, Sean Smith, 19, are currently at Southside Hospital in Bay Shore where they are in serious condition, police said.
The accident occurred when a 1994 Plymouth Voyager, driven by 18-year-old Jenna Concolino, of Centereach, northbound on Moreland Road was struck by a 1983 Cadillac that was traveling westbound on Motor Parkway, police said.
The Voyager then hit a 2003 Jeep which was driven by Michael Henry, 27, of Commack. The Jeep was southbound on Moreland Road and attempting to turn onto Motor Parkway when the vehicle was struck, police said.
The Smith brothers were passengers in the Voyager. The driver of the Cadillac, Daniel Kleeman, 18, of Commack, Concolino and Henry, suffered minor non-life-threatening injuries and were treated at local hospitals and released, police said.
Earlier Tuesday, Suffolk Police urged residents to stay off the roadways until conditions improve. Traffic lights are out in at a majority of the intersections in the county and overhead street lighting is also out, police said.
Police reminded motorists that if they encounter an intersection with a non-working traffic light, under New York State Vehicle and Traffic Law, it is to be treated as an all-way stop.
