A 16-year-old East Hampton girl was backing up a 2009 Chevrolet at the recycling center on Springs-Fireplace Road Sunday when the car struck Brian J. King, 62. The young driver did not realize she had hit anyone and continued backing up, forcing Mr. King, who had fallen to the ground, to roll away from the rear tire, which was coming at him. He suffered several injuries, according to police, but declined medical attention at the scene.
The teenager was accompanied by an adult in the car, police reported.
An East Hampton Town police officer patrolling Abraham’s Path a little after midnight on Nov. 28 pulled over a car with a burned-out headlight, leading to the arrest of Milton J. Medina-Zamora of East Hampton on a charge of driving while intoxicated.
