Yaphank, NY - On Monday afternoon, January 25th at 2:20 P.M., the 18-year-old passenger in a Jeep Liberty was killed after the Jeep and a second car collided on the L.I.E. eastbound, between 66-67. The impact of the collision caused the Jeep to crash through the guardrail and flip down 30-feet to the service road below. At least two people were ejected from the front and back passenger seat. Yaphank firefighters worked on the 18-year-old, who was pronounced dead at the hospital a short time later. Three other subjects were also injured and were transported, one by aviation, with non-life-threatening injuries.
