FORT SALONGA - A young boy was killed in a 3-car crash in Fort Salonga last night, and neighbors say the intersection where the accident happened is incredibly dangerous. Police say Jennifer Snyder, of Huntington Station, was heading west on Pulaski Road with her sister, 29-year-old Emily Snyder, and her young nephew, 4-year-old Finn Egan. That's when they were hit by a car driven by a Holbrook man who was heading south on Meadow Glen Road. Snyder's car then collided with a third car that had been heading east on Pulaski Road. Witnesses say Finn Egan had a seatbelt on, but was not strapped into a car seat. He was hospitalized and pronounced dead, police say. Neighbors tell News 12 Long Island that this is not the first serious accident to happen at the intersection, and many say they hope officials will address safety issues at the site in the wake of the tragedy. Police say the crash remains under investigation.
