The driver of the 2009 Jeep walked away but was located a short time later, police said.

Police said both drivers were taken to Southside Hospital in Bay Shore for treatment of minor injuries.

The driver of the 2009 Jeep was issued a summons for speeding and a summons for aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, police said.

No other details, including the identities of the drivers, were immediately available.
