NO DRIVING FOR OLD MEN: 9 people injured after 76-old man speeds his Lexus through red light, collides with several other cars in North Amityville, LI

NORTH AMITYVILLE, Long Island (WABC) -- Nine people were hospitalized Tuesday after an accident involving ten cars on Long Island.

The crash happened at about 12:05 p.m. at Route 110 and Bentley Street in North Amityville.

Police say a 76-year-old man, who was driving a Lexus sedan and may have suffered a medical event, sped up to a red light on Route 110.

Witnesses said the speeding car went airborne and rolled over other vehicles.

Nine people were transported with non-life-threatening injuries to three hospitals- Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center in West Islip, Saint Josephs in Bethpage and Nassau University Medical Center in East Meadow.

There were no arrests and no summonses issued.

Old drivers must undergo mental, medical, physical and driving testing prior to having their licenses renewed.  They cause way too many accidents on the roads.
