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.
