Drivers Sought in Holtsville Crash That Hurt Woman

Suffolk County police are looking for a bus driver and a motorcyclist that left the scene of five-vehicle crash that seriously injured a woman in Holtsville last week.

A group of motorcyclists were riding northbound on Nicolls Road near the Long Island Expressway when one of them crashed into a coach bus shortly before 10 p.m. on Sept. 11, according to Sixth Squad detectives.

A Toyota then struck a BMW that in turn hit a Pontiac that was stopped to help the motorcyclist, police said.

The driver of the BMW, a 53-year-old Farmingville woman, was taken to Stony Brook University Hospital where she is listed in serious condition.

The driver of the coach bus pulled over a short distance away but later drove off and the motorcyclist fled the scene. Detectives are seeking the bus driver and bus company representatives for reporting purposes.

Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $5,000 for information that leads to an arrest. Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
