A 64-year-old Mount Sinai woman was hospitalized in the early hours Saturday after she lost control of her car while driving on Route 25 in Peconic and hit a tree, a light post and the front corner of First Class Auto Body, before her car flipped on its side at about 12:20 a.m.

The driver, Paulette Irizarry, was taken to Eastern Long Island Hospital.
