At least 2 injured after car crashes into Oceanside homes

At least two people were injured after a car crashed into two Long Island homes.

Officials say the crash happened on Harvey Avenue just before 11 p.m. Wednesday.

The driver of a Mercedes Benz lost control of the car and hit a utility pole before colliding with two homes, authorities said.

No one in those homes was injured, but both residences had significant structural damage.

Officials say the driver of the car and a 37-year-old female passenger were removed from the car and taken to the hospital.

There is no word on their conditions.

Video shows serious damage left behind from the crash. One car was upside down in the driveway and a hole was left in the side of a house.

One of the homeowners said he was asleep at the time and said it sounded like lightning.

“I thought it was lightning and thunder, next thing I knew I was upstairs in my room, I saw lights and ran downstairs, I didn’t know where my son was and the next thing I saw was a big gaping hole in my house,” Randy Spielberg said.

At least 13 customers were left without power.

The investigation is ongoing.
