A 14-year-old girl riding as a passenger in a minivan Wednesday night in Farmingdale was killed when an oncoming Jeep Wrangler struck the vehicle, Nassau police said.

The name and hometown of the girl had not been released as of Thursday night.

Suffolk police said the girl was a passenger in the 2017 Honda Odyssey at about 6:15 p.m. when the 45-year-old driver attempted a left turn from westbound Fulton Street onto southbound Main Street. The Jeep, heading eastbound on Fulton Street, then hit the minivan, police said.

The Honda spun and hit two other vehicles waiting at the traffic light in the northbound lanes of Main Street, police said.

The drivers of the Honda and Jeep, as well as an occupant of one of the stopped vehicles, were treated at a hospital for injuries that were not life-threatening, police said.

Police did not release the names of either driver or the injured occupant of the stopped vehicle. The crash was noncriminal, police said.
