Tot Dies After Bethpage Crash

A 4-year-old boy died the day after the car he was a passenger in crashed in Bethpage this week.

Nassau County police said the toddler’s 65-year-old grandfather was driving a Nissan Altima northbound on Stewart Avenue when the car veered off the roadway, onto the sidewalk and struck a tree at 1:20 p.m. Monday.

Both the grandfather and the tot were taken to local hospitals, where they were treated for head trauma.

The boy, whose name was not released, was pronounced dead Tuesday at Cohen Children’s Medical Center.

Homicide Squad detectives impounded the vehicle but did not charge the driver.
