A head-on crash claimed the life of an 18-year-old woman while she was driving about a mile from her Lattingtown home on Monday morning.
Nassau County police said Isabella Grasso was driving her Mercedes Benz southbound on Old Tappan Road when she crossed over the double yellow line and struck a northbound Ford Explorer at 7:25 a.m.
Grasso was airlifted to the Nassau University Medical Center where she died about two hours later.
The SUV driver, a 17-year-old from Locust Valley whose identity was not immediately released, suffered injuries to his chest and arms. He was taken to an area hospital for treatment.
Second Squad detectives say there was no apparent criminality in the crash. Both vehicles were impounded safety inspections.
