The ambulances transported the women who were in "serious condition" to the Nassau University Medical Center in East Meadow, Dauth said, and police "shut the road down for a crime scene investigation based on the injuries."

Nassau police said the accident was being investigated, but there was no apparent criminality involved.

Dauth said a senior citizens residential complex is nearby on one side of the street.
