On Thursday morning around midnight, Nassau County Police were called to a report of a two-car motor vehicle accident with a car possibly into a building at 3595 Merrick Rd. in Seaford.

The Wantagh Fire Deptartment and Emergency Services Units (ESU) were also notified to respond. When units arrived, they confirmed they had a two-car motor vehicle accident with a car into the front building.

Wantagh Assistant Chief Joe Gross arrived on scene and requested that a Heavy Rescue Unit and Engine respond to check the stability of the building.

Two patients were transported to area hospitals for evaluation by the Wantagh Fire Department and an NCPD Ambulance. The building was found to be structurally sound and the automobile was removed from the store front.

Unless it was 7-Eleven, or the Police Precinct, or a bar, the building would have been closed at that hour and the SUV should have been programmed to know that, and to come back during normal business hours the following day. But why was the SUV driving itself and making ill-advised decisions...what was the DRIVER doing? Texting or something?
