    A 35-year-old man was taken to the hospital with severe injuries after his car smashed head-on into a snowplow in Rockland County Monday, authorities say.

    Police responded to a call about the accident on Route 9W near Congers around 7:20 p.m. and found the front of the man's Toyota completely smashed.

    Authorities say the Orangeburg man had hit a New York State Department of Transportation-owned snowplow. Rescuers had to extricate him from the destroyed Toyota; he was taken to a hospital in critical condition.

    The snowplow driver, a 37-year-old man, was not injured.

    The highway was closed for a few hours to assist in the investigation. It's not clear what caused the accident.
