A bicyclist from New York City was struck by a car Saturday morning on Napeague and was airlifted to the Stony Brook University Medical Center. The accident happened on Route 27 at Shipwreck Drive.
According to Ellen P. Grew of West Hartford, Conn., the driver of the westbound 2012 Subaru that struck 40-year-old Adam Cohen, the bicyclist appeared to be trying to make a left turn from the westbound shoulder, across the highway and onto Shipwreck Drive.
The results of a blood test could have serious legal ramifications for a Florida man who is staying with his girlfriend in East Hampton.
East Hampton Town police say that Patrick J. Dowd of Indiantown, 27, was driving Sunday night with a Montauk woman in front and her 1-year-old in a safety seat in back, when he veered back and forth over the double yellow line on Flamingo Avenue. An officer pulled him over on Industrial Road, near where it curves into Second House Road.
A Long Island Rail Road train headed for Montauk is being held up in Amityville after it struck and killed a man on the tracks on Saturday afternoon.
As police investigated, between 110 and 150 passengers were stuck on the eastbound train, which left Jamaica at 12:10 p.m. The accident occurred at about 12:45 p.m. The train was due in Montauk at 3 p.m.
Trains were delayed in both directions. Though service was expected to be restored soon, trains will be bypassing the Amityville station during the investigation.
