Bicyclist Struck by Car Suffered Critical Injuries

A New York City woman was critically injured when the bicycle she was riding was struck by a car on Three Mole Harbor Hog Creek Road a little after noon on Saturday.

East Hampton Town police said Kathryn Jones, 58, was biking northbound when she was struck by a 2006 Subaru station wagon being driven by Antjemaria D. Katcher, 65, of East Hampton, also northbound.

Ms. Jones was taken first by the Springs ambulance company, then Suffolk County medical helicopter to Stony Brook University Hospital where she was admitted in what police called critical but stable condition.

The station wagon was impounded by the police for a safety inspection. Police did not say in a press release yesterday afternoon whether Ms. Katcher had been issued any moving violations.

The accident happened near Gann Road, where Three Mile Harbor Road curves and becomes Three Mile Harbor Hog Creek Road. Visibility is somewhat limited on the curve.

Police have asked that anyone with information about the accident to contact them at 631-537-7575.
