Seventh Squad detectives are investigating a multiple-vehicle accident in Massapequa Tuesday night in which a backseat passenger was ejected, Nassau County police said.

Police said a 2000 Honda Accord driven by a woman, 25, was heading east on Merrick Road at about 8:47 p.m. when a 2000 Toyota Corolla made a left turn from the westbound lane onto southbound Roosevelt Boulevard.

The two cars collided, sending the Honda into an unoccupied parked car and the Toyota into another moving vehicle, a 2007 Ford Explorer.

A man, 18 in the backseat of the Toyota was ejected onto the road and taken to a hospital. He is listed in critical condition with "severe head trauma," police said.
