Pickup Truck Flips Over

A 2010 Toyota hit a train trestle last week, but unlike the familiar trestle collisions in East Hampton Village, the height of the vehicle was not the cause. On Sept. 19, at around 7:30 a.m., Arthur D. Purcell of East Hampton, 79, told East Hampton Town police he hit the trestle while southbound on Stephen Hand’s Path, then proceeded forward until stopping in the woods south of Potters Lane. When police arrived, Mr. Purcell complained of dizziness and was transported to Stony Brook Southampton Hospital.

On Sept. 20, a pickup truck rolled over three times after a head-on collision on Edgemere Street, just north of Elwell Street, in Montauk. At around 1:30 p.m., the driver of a 2016 Chevrolet pickup, James E. Jasuta of Montauk, 62, said he was northbound on Edgemere Street when a passing vehicle, a 2015 Subaru headed south, crossed into the northbound lane and caused the accident. The driver of the Subaru, Virginia A. Veltri of Montauk, 65, said the opposite had occurred, claiming the pickup had crossed into the southbound lane. 

An eyewitness corroborated Mr. Jasuta’s account, however, telling police the Subaru crossed the double yellow lines into the northbound lane and caused the collision. Mr. Jasuta complained of lower leg pain and was transported to Stony Brook University Hospital. He was released later that day. Ms. Veltri also complained of lower leg pain and was taken to Stony Brook Southampton Hospital. There were no charges. 

A Pat LaFrieda Veal and Lamb Co. delivery truck failed to stop at a crosswalk at the intersection of Main Street and the Circle South in East Hampton Village on Friday afternoon, causing an accident with a bicyclist, according to police.

At around 5 p.m., the driver of the truck, Alex A. Diaz Bonifacio of New Jersey, 21, was southbound on Main Street when, according to what he told police, a bus in the left lane blocked his view so that he could not see the bicyclist, who was crossing westbound.

The bicyclist, Jeffrey A. Goldstein of New York City, 41, said the truck did not stop at the crosswalk, and that he subsequently hit the rear of the truck. Mr. Goldstein complained of lower arm pain but did not wish treatment. Mr. Diaz Bonifacio was charged with failing to give a pedestrian the right of way on sidewalks, which includes those extending across alleyways, building entrances, roads, or driveways.

Not long afterward, another village collision occurred at the intersection of Pantigo Road and Egypt Lane. At 5:15 p.m., the driver of a 2006 Ford sport utility vehicle, Glynis Edmunds of Sag Harbor, 65, told East Hampton Village police that she was at the intersection of Accabonac Road and Pantigo Road waiting for a vehicle in front of her to make a left turn onto Egypt Lane.

She said that after that vehicle turned, another turning vehicle obstructed her view as she started to turn onto Egypt Lane, causing her to hit a 2016 BMW, which was eastbound on Pantigo Road. Although the driver of the BMW, Wayne S. Chessler of Scarsdale, N.Y., 57, was uninjured, his passenger, Dahlia H. Namy, 58, complained of chest pain, but did not seek treatment. Ms. Edmunds was charged with driving without a license.
