A two-car crash at the intersection of Middle Road and Ostrander Avenue this morning sent four people, including one child, to the hospital.

None of the injuries was life-threatening, police said.

Middle Road was closed to traffic between Northville Turnpike and Roanoke Avenue for approximately half an hour.
A westbound van on Middle Road attempting to make a left turn onto Ostrander Avenue at about 9:30 a.m. collided with an eastbound Volkswagen sedan, which overturned.

Police were able to extricate a young child from the overturned vehicle, which came to a rest on its side on the southeast corner of the intersection. A Riverhead Fire Department heavy rescue unit extricated the three adult occupants of the vehicle.

The driver of the van was uninjured.
