Head-on collision in Yonkers kills elderly driver

A head-on collision along an access road in Yonkers Friday claimed the life on an elderly driver.

The accident occurred on Sprain Road, which is used to get from Jackson Avenue to a string of stores. Witnesses say a car had veered across the double yellow line and hit a second car head-on. Emergency crews were unable to save a 78-year-old woman who was the driver of one of the vehicles. The driver and passenger in the other car were taken to the hospital.

Police are investigating the exact cause of the accident.
