The accident was in front of best buy and the guy on the black car was air lifted. Heavy rescue cut the to of the guys car of and it took several minutes for them to wedge the driver out of the car. it was a terrible thing to see.

We live on Soma Lane and we saw the helicopter circling and then landing probably at Burr School field. So sad.

Long Island Press did cover the accident by BestBuy, though there was nothing on 'why' it happened, just that it did. BTW, the helicopter did land and depart from Burr IS; I actually saw it lift off about 2 minutes to 7.

I live behind Burr and thought that there was a nearby robbery since I saw a chopper was circling around with its spot light on......didn't realize it was a medivac helicopter and was landing for a nearby accident with a serious injury!!
