SOMERS NY Sept 3 2010— A Heritage Hills security guard responding to a medical emergency was injured in a two-vehicle collision this afternoon.
The other vehicle’s driver, a 29-year-old Sleepy Hollow woman, and a 7-year-old boy riding with her were also taken to a hospital as a precaution.
Authorities said the guard, a 25-year-old Somers resident, was driving a security vehicle with emergency lights about 1:35 p.m. on the way to the medical call. He came to the intersection of Warren Street and West Hill Drive and expected the Sleepy Hollow woman’s car would stop. It didn’t and they collided. The security vehicle was forced off the road and rolled onto its side.
Somers firefighters extricated the guard. He was taken to Putnam Hospital Center for observation but was not believed seriously injured.
