A 2006 Toyota crashed into a utility pole on Old Montauk Highway in Montauk on Aug. 3, rolling over, snapping the pole in two, and knocking out power in Hither Hills for several hours. The accident happened at 1:30 in the afternoon, 500 feet west of Washington Avenue.
The driver, Jonas Ahern of Southampton, and his passenger, Rosemary R. Lee, were reportedly conscious and alert afterward but complaining of pain. Both were taken to Southampton Hospital.
A man arrested by East Hampton Town police last month on charges of drunken driving after a crash on Route 114 that sent a mother and child to the hospital was indicted last week on three felony charges, the most serious of which could result in a sentence of up to seven years in prison.
