The pickup traveled through the median into the southbound lane of traffic, and spun. A Nissan SUV driven by 21-year old Alexia Yerton of Manhattan crashed into the driver side door of the pickup.
Shortly after the crash a GMC pickup driven by 22-year-old Stefan Luciano Hemenway of Concordia also struck the Toyota as it sat in both lanes of traffic.
