Two motorists collided last weekend with utility poles on the two main arteries in and out of Sag Harbor. One is facing charges of driving while intoxicated.
The first crash, on Hampton Street at about 2:30 a.m. Saturday, involved a 2013 Volkswagen Beetle driven by Julia M. Hentschel, 18, of Wainscott. Sag Harbor Village police said she was standing by the car, whose airbag had deployed, when they arrived. The officer called for emergency medical help, which the young woman initially declined.
