TODT HILL — A two vehicle crash on Staten Island left one man dead and another two people in hospital Saturday, police said.
The crash took place at around 5:05 a.m outside 715 Todt Hill Road, when a 2007 Hyundai Electra collided head-on with a white Nissan box truck that had been traveling in the opposite direction on the road, police said.
