At about 6:31pm, the Ramapo Police Department responded to a motor vehicle accident on Route 59 in Airmont. An Infinity G35, operated by a 20 year old male from Spring Valley, New York, was traveling east on Route 59, when he entered the oncoming traffic lane striking a Lexus turning left into a restaurant parking lot.
