Major Motor Vehicle Accident Closes Route 6

By Hamodia Staff

Three automobiles were involved in a major accident on Route 6 eastbound, which connects Route 17 and the Palisades Interstate Parkway, closing down traffic as multiple Hatzalah ambulances from Kiryas Yoel and other areas assisted in transporting several victims to area hospitals.

The accident involved a head on collision in which a car, traveling more than 50 MPH, collided with another vehicle, causing the airbags to deploy. The passenger was wearing a seatbelt at the time.

One victim was pronounced dead at the scene. A second victim, who was conscious and alert, complained of pelvic and lower back pain, and had an apparent arterial bleed on his right arm which was treated with a tourniquet. The victim was airlifted to an area hospital.

Route 6 remained closed as police investigate the scene.
