An elderly driver lost control of his sport utility vehicle causing a four-car accident in downtown Sag Harbor on Tuesday afternoon.
The man, whose name was not immediately released, was backing up out of a diagonal parking space on the east side of Main Street, near the Golden Pear, when the accident occurred just before 3 p.m.
His Mercedes S.U.V. reportedly spun around in a circle, hitting the signs posted in the median, nearly hitting a S.U.V. heading south, and then slamming into the back of a parked pickup truck. His Mercedes hit the pickup truck with such force that he pushed it onto the sidewalk, up against a bench. He then hit a Hyundai Sonata, parked next to the truck, sending the Sonata into the parked Cadillac Escalade next to it.
A bystander said the wheels on the Mercedes S.U.V. were smoking afterwards.
Sag Harbor Village Police Officer Kenneth Marangio said he saw the accident and rushed to help.
No one was hurt.
