Suffolk County police said they are investigating a two-vehicle crash in front of the Smith Haven Mall in Lake Grove Wednesday that injured four, including two critically.

Christopher Ferchland, 34, was driving a 2007 Lincoln pickup truck west on Middle Country Road at about 7 p.m. when he struck a 2015 Honda Crosstour driven by Jeanette Acevedo, 50, who was traveling east and attempting to make a left turn into the mall.

Ferchland's pickup then hit a utility pole.

Ferchland, of Farmingville, and his passenger, a woman, were taken to Stony Brook University Hospital where they are listed in critical condition.

Acevedo, of Brentwood, and her passenger, a woman, also were taken to Stony Brook with non-life-threatening injuries.

Nesconset Fire Department Chief James Keane said one vehicle was turned over on its side, and its occupants, a man and a woman, were "severely entrapped" and had to be extricated.

Both vehicles were impounded for safety checks and the investigation is continuing.
