2 Injured, 1 Hospitalized in Auto Accident

The incident took place on Port Washington Blvd.

Two people were injured, one hospitalized after an automobile accident on Middle Neck Road and Radcliffe Avenue on Wednesday in Port Washington.

Emergency crews were on the scene in response to a call for an overturned vehicle. According to Port Washington police, one car appeared to be traveling northbound, and made a left turn in front of a car traveling southbound.  

Crews transported one person to the hospital.

the title of this article needs to be revised. I was thinking, "why were two people brought to the hospital if only one was injured?"

Thanks pw. Patch regrets the error.

What time of day did this happen? Did the tree trimming on Middle Neck Road have anything to do with it? Crews have been shutting down one lane this week to clean up the trees effected by Sandy. I go by this intersection three or four times per day. Very scary.

This happened about 6:30pm last night, tree trimming was not a factor. The young man brought to the hospital was discharged, he is fine.

Glad to hear he is ok, thanks sadeto.
George Mulligan December 20, 2012 at 08:12 PM
sadeto, thank you for the followup info.

I think the staff on the patch get into the habit of proofreading their articles before publishing. Grammar, spelling and basic fact checking has been a little weak as of late.
Pam Robinson (Editor) December 20, 2012 at 09:41 PM
Yes, Scott, everyone needs an editor as a backstop.

Scott, I think your comment could use a bit of proofreading and editing. Maybe you should hire someone who knows basic grammar, or at least read through what you write before you hit the "Submit" button. I think the Patch staff does an admirable job getting news out to the community in a very timely and compelling fashion.

Yeah, "has been a little weak..." should be "have been a little weak...".

Sometimes we need to look past spelling errors and poor grammar to realize people and reporters often make very good points which should not be ignored. Unlike Newsday and other newspapers,Those who comment about stories in the Patch often see things a little differently then some do and to me this is very refreshing. We should be critical about the contents of a comment or new story rather then the grammar or spelling. To everyone reading this have a safe, great, holiday season and remember that we made it through a major storm without the loss of a lot of lives in this area. The Port Washington Manhasset OEM pulled through doing a remarkable job. They actuall exceeded the efforts of the ToNH and Nassau County when it came to keeping us updated. Merchants who could open after Sandy struck did so and we thank you for that. Lets hope that 2013 brings us better times without any major natural disasters. Happy Holidays to those no matter what holiday you and your family celebrate.

Wow, things really got off point. This was an article about a traffic accident. More than half the comments were about typographical errors. Time to move on folks. Let get a life.

George" Sorry for being off topic but as I have found out many people stray from the topic just to beat someone up for poor grammar or for the fact that they verbally bash someone and do ot directly address the comment. Some people have even mentioned that the site needs to be monitored. This is why I wrote the comment I did. The site was intended for go use and for the most part it has been that way. Some people go out of their way to destroy that purpose. Thanks for letting me explain things
