HARRISON, N.Y. A four vehicle pileup at 3:57 p.m. on Halstead Avenue in front of the Claremon Shopping Center left one car on its side, but the female driver inside walked away unscathed.
According to Police Chief Anthony Marraccini, the driver of a white Mercedes heading northbound on Halstead Avenue lost control of her motor vehicle and struck a black Honda Civic in front of it. The Honda then collided with a grey Toyota Matrix, which then slammed into the rear of a truck in front of it. The Honda had its front fender ripped off in the process. All three vehicles that were struck were stopped waiting for a red light at the time of the accident, police said.
Harrison firefighters were on the scene within minutes. They quickly responded to the car on its side, breaking the front window of it to get to the woman who was trapped inside. The woman, whose name was not released, was free in about three minutes, police said. She refused an offer to be taken to the hospital.
Everyone seems to be ok, Marraccini said.
Three fire trucks, including a tower ladder for additional manpower, were on the scene. Harrison Police closed Halstead Avenue in both directions from Oakland Avenue to Haviland Street for approximately one hour.
We were able to stabilize the vehicle so it wouldnt tip over, said Assistant Fire Chief Will Nardozzi.
