A 91-year-old Valley Stream man crashed his white Buick LaCrosse into an outdoor support beam near the entrance to the Friendly’s restaurant in Hampton Bays on Friday morning.
No injuries were reported following the accident, which occurred just before 10 a.m.
Southampton Town Police Sergeant Howard Kalb said the manager of the Montauk Highway restaurant called 911 at 9:55 a.m. to report the incident. A responding ambulance was called off after officers determined that neither the driver of the sedan, Nicholas Schiano, nor his unidentified passenger, suffered any injuries.
The collision knocked over the post, as well as the brick column supporting it, police said.
The cause of the accident is under investigation.
