A six-wheeled box truck loaded with cargo got stuck on May 16 when it was driven off the road and onto the steep edge of the village green on East Hampton’s Main Street. Village Police Detective Sgt. Greg Brown said heavy rain played a role in the mishap. Police called Rapid Recovery to tie down the truck and winch it off the dirt so that it did not tip over. No tickets were issued.
