North Shore High School Teacher Injured by Driver
Three people—a teacher and a couple—were injured outside North Shore High School in Glen Head Friday morning by a driver who has been charged with reckless driving, Nassau County police said.
The teacher, who police have yet to identify, was crossing the street near the school when the accident occurred. Police said 28-year-old Cruz Correa was driving northbound on Glen Cove Avenue just before 10 a.m. when he struck the teacher.
The couple—a 66-year-old man and 65-year-old woman—was injured when Cruz’s Lexus crossed into the southbound lanes, police said, and collided with their 2007 Volkswagen Passat.
Correa was airlifted by Nassau County police to Nassau University Medical Center, police said.
The teacher and couple were also taken to area hospitals with varying injuries, police said.
Police impounded both vehicles for brake and safety checks.
The investigation is ongoing, police said.
Correa will be arraigned when he’s healthy enough to do so, police said.
