A West Babylon man was hit by a car Tuesday night and taken to Good Samaritan Hospital with head and back trauma, according to Suffolk Police.

Timothy Rush, 18, was hit by a 2004 Honda Civic driven by 24-year-old Lauren Lordi, of Commack, who was heading northbound in the right lane about 10 p.m. on Great East Neck Road near Hobart Street, according to police.

What a darn shame....we have too many people almost being killed around this area & Arnold Ave. People speed way over the speed limit(30mph) I was by SouthBay School on the same st. today & people went right through the red light & had no conception of the 20mph. What will it take? A child being killed? We need red light cameras around these areas & maybe people will slow down?

Great East Neck rd has had 3 major accidents in the last month ..Red light camera's arent going to help slow the trucks and people down. There is not a person who observes the 20mph school zone by South Bay..Need maybe more traffic lights to slow them down and make sure if you get a green next will be red. After making so many stops maybe they will use Little East Neck Rd instead where there are not so many schools and houses. T

People would think twice when they get tickets for going through red lights! For having more stop signs, I don't know. It does not work on Arnold Ave.I was hit 3 times there for going into a driveway when the people passed me on the LEFT when i was maikg a left with the directional signal on. 109 & Arnold defin. needs a red light camera. Remember the HS student hit? She has had yrs. of rehab.(someone went through that red light) Comes down to people speeding,talking on cell phones & not paying attention!

This is none of your business.. Noone deserves to have people throwing out personal info to the Suffolk county community.. So do yourself a favor & stay out of it.

This is to Monique .. Don't you think that IF that is really what happened the family would obviously not want you writing that on the Internet ? It's extremely direspectful and rude. I'm very close with the person that this happened to and can't believe someone would have the nerve to write that on the Internet. His family will be extremely upset about this. I don't know who you think you are that you should write that about an 18 year old. It's his family's business and nobody else's.
