CORAM, NY - On Wednesday morning, October 27th around 10:30 A.M., a driver lost control of her car on Rte. 112, south of Country Rd. 83, leaving the roadway and striking a pole, snapping it into pieces. Coram firefighters responded and secured the car and leaking fluids from the car. The driver, who was pregnant, and a small child were rushed to a trauma center for evaluation. The driver and small child were briefly trapped, but were able to be assisted out of the car as it came to rest on the only parked car in the parking lot. SCPD closed the roadway for an investigation and to clear the busy roadway of wires and pole debris. 6th Precinct detectives and crime scene units also responded.
