I passed the accident scene right after it happened. She was driving a small black sedan and turned in front of a Suburban truck. They both came to a stop on the lawn of Dunkin Donuts. It was a very bad accident scene. There are constantly accidents on this corner.

"Aguiar and Cubano are in stable condition and receiving medical condition, police said."

What does "receiving medical condition" mean?

I know the girl "receiving medical condition" and some of the comments on this board are terrible. This girl is sitting in the hospital in a coma from blood loss at the moment only to have to wake up at some point and find out her husband is dead and she is in for a long recovery. Her sister the driver has to sit there powerless and know a split second mistake has lead to all this. How little compassion do you have to have to read a story like this and write something like the first few comments, how would you feel if it happened to someone close to you?

I spent the day with the mourning family. There is no room for petty conversation here or anywhere else. This is a horrible tragedy and the familes are crushed.

How little compassion does one need to have to do something so careless with loved ones in the car? Maybe she should have given more than a split second of thought before turning.

maybe people should talk less about things they don't know. there are always accidents around there [that corner & a few others down the road] because on this potion of the road it's particularly hard to judge the rate of speed someone is traveling at when you're tyring to make a left. And, on top of that people don't do the posted speed when they drive on middle country, the speed limit is 40 and the average speed is about 55. so please, if you don't understand the whole situation...don't talk about it

You’re right Kelly, I don’t know that area well, but I know several just like it in my own neck of the woods. Generally speaking, if people would take the extra moments to think before they act and to abide by the speed limits, there would be a significant decrease in crashes. People need to think twice or three times before they act and to slow down. There’s nothing so important to rush to when lives are at stake (excluding police/fire rescuers).
Drive carefully Kelly and have a nice day.

This area of Middle Country Road is the State of NY's deadliest stretches of road. It has the most fatalities in the whole state. This corner in particular has a Dunkin Donuts, 7-11, taco Bell.Pizza Hut and it's the road that leads to the high school. There is a lot of traffic in and out of these fast food places.

Considering this intersection is so notorious for it's number of fatalities, wouldn't you think people would be a little more careful while negotiating it?

I have a question.

Do you teenagers spell three quarters of the words in your posts incorrectly on purpose?

Seems to me you guys go out of your way to sound ignorant.

She was only 18 years old. Maybe a little inexperienced? Who knows? I know I'm very cautious of it.

Since it’s a known “bad area” that would warrant people to take extra care and time while driving through it. Nothing can be so important to rush through and take a life over.

No, we don't need more enforcement. What we need is less inexperienced, reckless teenagers on the road.
