Huntington Station Woman Dies After Crash

An 18-year-old Huntington Station woman who crashed her SUV last month died of her injuries 19 days later.

Suffolk County police said Alanna McCarthy was driving a Toyota RAV4 northbound on Sweet Hollow Road in Melville when she lost control of the vehicle, struck a guard rail and the SUV overturned south of Chichester Road at 1:20 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 22.

McCarthy was taken to Nassau County Medical Center, where she died Thursday.

Her three passengers were taken to Huntington Hospital, where they were treated for minor injuries and released.

Second Squad detectives impounded the vehicle, are continuing the investigation and ask anyone with information about this crash to call them at 631-854-8252. All calls will be kept confidential.
