Google maps

Emergency workers responded to a motorcycle accident in Montauk on Monday evening, as the Memorial Day wekeend was winding down.

The accident occurred on South Fox Street and Montauk Highway at about 6:45 p.m. First arriving units immediately called for a Medevac helicopter to fly into East Hampton airport to transport one patient to Stony Brook University Medical Center.

It was not immediately clear if the accident involved only a motorcycle, but no other patients were taken to the hospital. 

Traffic was diverted off Montauk Highway down West Lake Drive, briefly.

One ambulance was already out of the area, transporting a bicyclist who was struck by a vehicle in front of Ruschmeyer's on Second House Road. That patient was taken to Southampton Hospital.

No more details were immediately available.


This is my husband, Dan Loos. A deer jumped out in front of the motorcycle. He is in Stony Brook for a couple weeks. Other than the road rash and gash on his eye, his leg is smashed. Long recovery ahead but looking good.

I want to thank everyone for their help and support. My husband is doing much better now. He is starting PT and may be walking by the end of summer! His leg has been rebuilt and the cuts and road rash are all healed. He is trying to handle some work by the phone. A side story was the young man that stopped to help him... we are so sorry for the family of Tyler V for their loss. He was truly an angel helping my husband when he was laying there in the middle of the highway at a blind spot in the road! We visited the crash site and wow it was intense to see how things unfolded with all this terrible Hamptons traffic! Thank you to everyone involved. :) We truly do appreciate having husband/daddy/friend with us today.
