A 2011 BMW led police on a high-speed chase at midnight last Saturday that ended in the arrest of the driver, Kyle B. Ballou, 23, of East Hampton, on multiple charges including drunken driving.
East Hampton Town police first spotted the BMW speeding west on Montauk Highway near Cove Hollow Road, crossing lane lines to pass cars ahead. An officer activated his lights and siren, but Mr. Ballou, after momentarily pulling off the road, turned around and sped off to the east, quickly exceeding 100 miles per hour, according to the report.
An 18-year-old East Hampton woman had two car accidents in four days last week, both of them involving deer. Ashley Silvertsen was driving a 1995 Jeep on the afternoon of Nov. 20 on Three Mile Harbor-Hog Creek Road in Springs when she thought she saw a deer on the road ahead. She swerved and went off the side of the road, coming to a stop in some shrubbery. The Jeep was towed away with damage to the undercarriage.
