The driver of an Acura lost control of her vehicle, which hopped a curb and slammed into the side of the Montauk Playhouse on Saturday afternoon, according to Montauk Fire Chief Vinnie Franzone. It was unclear what caused the accident. No one was seriously hurt and there was no structural damage to the building, he said.

The Montauk Fire Department was called at about 12:20 p.m. to the Playhouse, which is right next door to the firehouse on Flamingo Avenue. They found the car had gone over the sidewalk in the parking lot and hit the eastern corner of the building. Both the side and passenger front airbags deployed.

Both the female driver and the female passenger refused medical care, according to the chief. The vehicle was towed away.
