UPDATE: Friday, 1 p.m.
The head-on crash was caused when a 26-year-old man crossed the double yellow line while traveling north in his 2003 Chevrolet Impala and hit a 2001 Ford Crown Victoria, which was heading south and being driven by the 85-year-old woman, according to Westhampton Beach Police Lieutenant Trevor Gonce.
The woman was transported to Peconic Bay Medical Center by the Westhampton Memorial Ambulance for head and hand injuries suffered when the car’s airbag deployed. The man, who was issued a summons for failing to maintain his lane, was also transported to Peconic Bay but by the East Quogue Fire Department ambulance. He suffered head and neck injuries after hitting the windshield, Lt. Gonce said.
Police, who have not identified the drivers, said no additional charges will be filed against man.
