ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. -- A 51-year-old Sloatsburg man suffered life-threatening injuries in a crash that closed Route 17 for several hours.
Ramapo Police responded to the serious injury crash around 7:32 p.m. Saturday, on Route 17 in Sloatsburg in the area of the Sunnyside Restaurant, Lt. Kevin Lee said.
The crash occurred when an ATV and a 2016 Subaru, both traveling northbound in the left lane, collided, Lee said.
The unidentified driver of the ATV sustained serious head injuries and was treated at the scene by Rockland paramedics and an off-duty doctor on his way to Tuxedo who stopped to offer aid, Lee added.
