Bergen, NY (July 12, 2020) – Yesterday, July 11, a teen was injured after being ejected in a rollover crash on West Bergen Road.
The driver of the vehicle was headed south when their vehicle left the roadway and struck a culvert. The crash caused the vehicle to veer back onto the roadway, off again, and into a tree where it rolled over.
A total of four teenagers were in the vehicle at the time of the accident. A 17-year-old female was ejected from the vehicle and pinned under the back of the vehicle. She suffered from serious leg injuries and was taken to the hospital by a medical helicopter.
The 17-year-old female driver was also taken to the hospital with injuries but is expected to recover. It is believed that she fell asleep at the time of the accident.
The investigation is ongoing at this time.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family in hopes of a full recovery.
