Two others were hospitalized after the crash, which occurred Thursday on the Meadowbrook Parkway. The Hempstead Town Supervisor said the employees were on their way to work at Camp Anchor. The camp is run by the town and serves children with disabilities, including quadriplegia, autism and Down syndrome.
All five were on their way to work at the camp, which has one counselor for each camper. The camp’s name, Anchor, stands for Answering the Needs of Citizens with Handicaps through Organized Recreation.
Authorities report the single-car wreck happened about 8:45 a.m. on the Meadowbrook Parkway in Roosevelt; the Honda sedan reportedly veered off the road while changing lanes and slammed into a tree.
Most camp workers were volunteers. However, the accident victims were paid employees who had worked at the camp for several years.
