A head-on collision between a 2011 Nissan S.U.V. and a 2000 Chevy dump truck pulling a landscaper’s wagon tied up Friday’s rush-hour traffic on Montauk Highway in Montauk and sent the driver of the Nissan to Southampton Hospital for examination.
The Nissan, driven by John Miller of Syosset, was totaled. Mr. Miller told East Hampton Town police that he wasn’t sure what had happened, according to the police report. The driver of the truck, Gonzalo Dominguez, told police that the eastbound Nissan had shifted into the westbound lane, headed toward oncoming traffic, and that he had tried to avoid hitting it but couldn’t.
The driver of the vehicle following Mr. Dominguez’s truck corroborated his version of events to police.
