Montauk Highway Crash Sends One to Hospital

A car crash Tuesday afternoon in Montauk sent one driver to the hospital.

East Hampton Town police and the Montauk Fire Department responded to an accident at the entrance to the town's recycling facility off Montauk Highway at about 1:50 p.m.

It was unclear how many vehicles were involved, but it is believed only one person was transported to Southampton Hospital. 

Westbound traffic was rerouted down Lincoln Road, but the road was expected to be reopened shortly after the accident. 

No other details were immediately available.
