UPDATED: Car accident in Glen Head leaves one dead


The Nassau County Police Department’s Homicide Squad is currently investigating a fatal car accident that occurred in Glen Head on Thursday, March 8, at approximately 4 p.m.

According to detectives, a 67-year-old female was driving a 2015 Audi eastbound on Glen Head Road. The driver struck a 2015 Volkswagen coming northbound from Sheppard Street. The Volkswagen was driven by a 55-year-old female, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

The 13-year-old passenger of the Volkswagen suffered minor injuries and was transported to an area hospital for further treatment. The driver of the Audi was transported to an area hospital by the Glenwood Fire Department, where she was treated for minor injuries.

“I was sitting in my office and heard a horrible bang, and I saw the woman in the white Audi swerving," said Diane McLaughlin who works at Swim Clean, a pool supply store located on Glen Head Road, less than a half mile away from the site of the crash. "It looked like she was going to hit the building.”

McLaughlin said the 13-year-old was the daughter of the deceased driver.

Both vehicles were impounded for a brake and safety check.
