A man who suffered a medical emergency crashed his car near The Source Mall in Westbury, killing a 27-year-old woman in the passenger’s seat and a 4-year-old boy in the back seat on Sunday morning.

Nassau County police said the driver, who’s also 27, was behind the wheel of a Mitsubishi Galant eastbound on Old Country Road when he veered abruptly to the right, mounted the curb and struck a tree  near the corner of Merchants Concourse shortly before noon.

The woman and toddler were taken to a local hospital, where they were pronounced dead shortly later.

The driver was hospitalized in stable condition for treatment of his injuries.

Homicide Squad detectives are continuing the investigation and impounded the car, but no charges are pending.
