None of the passengers was wearing a seat belt, authorities said. The driver apparently lost control on a road surface covered with 2 inches of packed snow, said state police Trooper Michael Pappas. The car ricocheted off a couple of snow-banks before leaving the road and hitting a large stump, about 3 feet high and 3 feet in diameter, police said. The force of the crash ripped the stump out of the ground and sent it flying 50 feet through the air. The car went off the road near the fire station on Depot Road, rolled several times and came to rest on its roof, Assistant Rescue Chief Jason Cole said in a news release. There were no signs of drinking or drug use, police said, but the fact that nobody in the car was wearing a seat belt contributed to their injuries. The driver of the car, Kate Pimental, 18, of Dover, N.H., was taken to the trauma unit of Maine Medical Center in Portland complaining of head pain, Cole said, but was later discharged.

Two-car crash injures teenage girl and Morgan deputy

A New York Fire Department spokesman said eight people were taken to area hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries because of the chain-reaction wreck, which occurred around 8:20 p.m. The spokesman said he did not have a firm number on how many cars were involved. More than 10 of the cars were wrecked, but the spokesman could not confirm media reports that more than 30 cars were involved. He said the accident — which took place a few miles before the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, was not considered serious and that the wrecked cars had not been traveling at high rates of speed. A New York Police Department spokesman said officials could not say exactly how many cars were involved either, and that the accident was not serious. “It was a couple separate incidents that makes it look like a big pileup, but they’re just clustered together,” the spokesman said.

Multiple car accident on Gowanus Expressway

This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Images MORGAN — A sheriff’s deputy caused a car crash Monday night that briefly sent a teenage girl to an Ogden hospital. The deputy ran a stop sign while responding to a keep-the-peace call, said Lt. Chris Simmons, Utah Highway Patrol supervisor for Weber and Morgan counties. “Every indication is the Morgan County deputy failed to yield the right of way in running a stop sign,” Simmons said. “He will likely be cited with failure to yield, but that would be a prosecutor’s call.” The deputy did not have his overhead lights activated upon entering the intersection where the crash occurred, Simmons said. Morgan County Sheriff Blaine Breshears confirmed the 9 p.m. traffic accident involved a patrol car and another vehicle at 100 S. State St. in Morgan. He said he did not have full details since, per policy, an outside agency was investigating the crash, in this case the UHP. Breshears and Simmons both declined to identify the deputy. Simmons said a vehicle driven by a group of four teenage girls was northbound on State when they broadsided the deputy’s patrol car, which was eastbound on 100 South.
