A man and a woman are being treated at local hospitals for injuries they sustained in a two-vehicle accident on Route 6 in Mohegan Lake shortly before 6:30 p.m. Monday, state police said.
The woman driver of a Subaru and the male driver of a Mercedes Benz were headed in opposite directions when they collided near Regina Avenue on Route 6, police said.
The man, who was transported to the Hudson Valley Hospital Center in Cortlandt, sustained minor injuries. Police have yet to speak to the woman, who was transported to the Westchester County Medical Center. Police did not identify the victims, but described the man and woman to be middle-aged.
Lake Mohegan firefighters used four different tools to help them extricate the man and woman from their vehicles, First Assistant Fire Chief Adam Cerrato said. He said both victims are expected to recover from their non-life threatening injuries.
In addition to Lake Mohegan firefighters, other responding agencies were Lake Mohegan Ambulance Corps, Yorktown and Peekskill paramedics, county and state police.
Route 6 was closed from Lexington Avenue to Westbrook Drive in Mohegan Lake.
