Driver Escapes Injury in South Mountain Road Crash

SUV overturns, lands in home's front yard in northern New City.

South Mountain Road in northern New City was closed for a short time Thursday afternoon when an SUV overturned and crashed onto the front lawn of a private home.

Clarkstown police and volunteers of the New City Fire Department said that despite the roll-over, no one was injured in the wreck and the driver was able to get out of the car on his own.

The Hyundai Santa Fe hit a guard rail and a fence, landing upside down on a lawn. A tow truck was called in to pull the wreck out of the yard.

Firefighters had to cut a portion of guard rail so the SUV could be removed. The car landed on the south side of South Mountain Road, just west of Wyndham Lane.

This road is very curvy. Everyone should drive within the speed limit, but unfortunately that is not alway the case.
