Man dies in RV crash on Round Swamp Road in Old Bethpage; woman hurt
A man has died and a woman is injured after their RV crashed into a tree and a utility pole, then tipped on a steep embankment in Old Bethpage.
It happened on Round Swamp Road. Police say the 71-year-old man was driving and apparently suffered a medical condition at the wheel. His wife, who was a passenger in the vehicle, has been hospitalized.
Firefighters had to cut their way into the vehicle to extricate the victims, whose identities have not been released.
Fire officials say high-tension wires above the road and a propane tank inside the RV added to the danger of the accident.
