Four people are dead and three others are in serious condition after a vehicle carrying five people crossed into the opposite lane and collided with an SUV in Farmingdale just after midnight Saturday, Nassau County police said.
Detectives said a 2001 Nissan traveling westbound on Conklin Street around 12:04 a.m. crossed into the eastbound lanes and crashed into a GMC Suburban—killing the male driver, who was pronounced dead at a local hospital, a male and female passenger, and a male who was ejected from the car.
Another male ejected from the Nissan is in serious condition, police said. Two of the passengers died on impact, police said.
The driver of the GMC, a 53-year-old man, and his passenger, were admitted to a local hospital in serious condition, police said.
