The impact caused the Ford to spin into another lane, where it was hit by a Nissan. The Ford overturned and Edsall was ejected from the car.
The Nissan then collided with a Volkswagen.
Edsall and a front passenger in the Nissan were taken to the hospital for serious injuries that were not considered life-threatening.

Edsall was charged with criminal possession of stolen property for the Ford. Police say the Ford was stolen from Randy's Auto Repair in North Patchogue earlier that day.
