UPDATE: Two Taken To Hospital Following Hampton Bays Crash


UPDATE, 3:55 p.m.:

Two people went to the hospital with complaints of pain following the crash, which turned out to be relatively not serious, said Southampton Town Police Sergeant James Cavanagh.

The accident involved a 2007 Chevrolet pick-up truck and a 1995 Ferrari and was called in at 12:17 p.m.

The truck driver told police that while driving west in the right lane of West Montauk Highway, the Ferrari pulled out in front of him, causing a collision.

The Ferrari driver, meanwhile, told police that while trying to make a left turn into the Hampton Bays Medical Atrium, a vehicle in the left westbound lane stopped and signaled for him to go. When the Ferrari driver attempted to turn, he did not see the truck coming at him in the right lane and they crashed.

Each vehicle had one passenger.

Sgt. Cavanagh said the passenger in the Ferrari went to Peconic Bay Medical Center, while the passenger in the pick-up went to Southampton Hospital. The driver of the pick-up reported being hurt, but did not go to the hospital, and the Ferrari driver was unhurt, he said.

No tickets were issued.
