Out-of-Control Car Sparks Massive Pileup on Long Island

A 76-year-old driver may have suffered some sort of medical event when he crashed into vehicles stopped at a traffic light on a Long Island roadway, causing a 10-car pileup, police said.  The out-of-control car slammed into nine other cars stopped at a red light on Route 110 northbound and Bentley Road in Amityville around lunchtime Tuesday, according to police. Ashley Seales was among the drivers stopped at the light when she felt the sudden impact.  "It went airborne over my car and crashed in front of me," Seales said of the out-of-control car.  Nine people, including the 76-year-old driver were taken to the hospital and another passenger who was hurt when a flying car part smashed through the rear of the SUV he was in and hit him in the shoulder. No one was seriously hurt.  "After everybody calmed down, after the ambulances left, you just look back and think, 'How did I just walk away from that?'" said Seales.
