Four people, including two children, were injured in a two-vehicle collision in Carmel after one driver lost control of a vehicle on icy roads, according to Putnam County Sheriff Don Smith.
The crash occurred about 8:50 a.m. Friday on Seminary Hill Road near the intersection with Mechanic Street, said Capt. William McNamara.
According to the preliminary reports, a Carmel woman was driving a car southbound on Seminary Hill Road, with her three children riding as passengers, when she reportedly lost control of her car on a patch of ice. Her vehicle slid sideways and crossed into the northbound lane of the road, colliding with a northbound car driven by a woman from Carmel, McNamara said.
Two of the children were injured in the crash. A 6-year-old boy suffered an apparent broken collarbone and his 12-year-old sister had a possible leg injury. Both drivers complained of neck and back pain. The third child, a 14-year-old boy, was not injured, he added.
The mother and her two injured children were taken by ambulance to Danbury Hospital. The other driver was transported to Putnam Hospital Center, McNamara said.
The impact caused heavy damage to both vehicles and they were towed from the scene.
Assisting sheriff’s deputies at the scene was the Carmel Police Department, the Carmel and Brewster Fire Departments, the Carmel and Brewster Volunteer Ambulance Corps, and two EmStar paramedic units.
