Crash on King
On Monday, June 14, two sedans collided at the Betsy Brown Road and King Street intersection, just outside of King Street School, at around 4 p.m. No one was injured in the accident, though the front end of both vehicles incurred significant damage. Port Chester Police Captain Charles Nielsen said the accident transpired after one of the vehicles attempted to turn left onto King Street from Betsy Brown Road. Two of the victims embrace one another after the accident at an intersection that many residents have said needs a stoplight specifically for left turns. Joseph DeCarlo|Westmore News
