A 75-year-old woman was killed and another man injured in a two-car wreck on Route 110 in East Farmingdale Monday afternoon.
East Farmingdale firefighters responded to the scene of the crash on the southbound side of Route 110 at about 3:15 p.m.
Firefighters reported the driver of a 2011 Hyundai, Judith Stein, of East Meadow, was pronounced dead at the scene. A second victim was transported by ambulance to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, Suffolk Police said.
Suffolk County detectives said the woman's red Hyundai was traveling east on Avon Court in East Farmingdale when she attempted to make a left turn onto northbound Route 110.
In the intersection, her car was struck by a 1993 Ford pick-up truck operated by a male driver that was traveling southbound on Route 110.
The male driver, Willie John Seegers, 25, of Bay Shore, was transported to Nassau University Medical Center where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
The investigation is still ongoing. Detectives ask anyone who may information about this incident to call the First Squad at 631-854-8152.
Traffic in the area was badly congested with both lanes reported closed for more than an hour. Police diverted traffic on Route 110 onto New Highway, causing major back-ups in the area.
