2 Injured in West Hills Crash

Head-on collision on Round Swamp Road sends 2 to hospital.

Two people were injured in a head-on crash on Round Swamp Road Friday afternoon.

A Toyota and  a Nissan sedan traveling in opposite directions on Round Swamp Road in West Hills near Westvale Lane collided head on, sending both drivers to Huntington Hospital with very serious injuries.

After colliding the Toyota veered off the  road and slammed into a utility pole, causing the transformer to break open and leak on top of the vehicle.

The Huntington Manor Fire Department and Huntington Community First Aid Squad responded to the scene.

John. I hope your wife recovers 100%. As far as the rest of you, we cannot assume drivers will slow down or drive careful because we accept them as being stupid like some people have. What we can is put things in place to make them think twice or for drivers not familiar with the road. Like I said before, they need to add speed bumps, another traffic light, cameras whatever. Round Swamp Road averages about two accidents per month and it is only getting worse because people rush off or onto the highways every day. We all need to write to the town of huntington and let them know we need to take drastic measures. We also need to attend town meetings and express our concerns.

Whether or not there are safety issues on RSR, the traffic lights they installed accomplished nothing but to create more congestion and waste gas. Perhaps the timing of the lights needs to be adjusted - I frequently come to the light when it is red and there is no one exiting the side road and then when the light turns green, the other light just 50 yards away turns red. The idea is to slow down traffic, not bring it to a complete stop and cause traffic backups.
