East Hampton Man Dies in Southampton Motorcycle Crash

An East Hampton man who witnesses said was riding east on a 2016 Suzuki motorcycle Thursday evening "at a high rate of speed" died following a collision with an eastbound 2015 Ford Fusion on County Road 39 in Southampton.

The collision occurred west of the Shinnecock Golf Course. According to Southampton Town Police Lt. Susan Ralph, the Fusion was making a right turn from Greenfield Road onto County Road 39 after a full stop when it was hit by the motorcycle.

Police said the driver of the motorcycle, Allan Alvarez, 21, was not breathing when they arrived at the scene. Officers immediately began cardiopulmonary resuscitation in an effort to save the man, who was transported to Stonybrook Southampton Hospital, where he later died, police said. Milos Djurasic, 22, of Southampton, the driver of the Ford, was not injured in the collision. After interviewing witnesses, police declined to issue any citations.

A third vehicle, a westbound 2011 BMW driven by Laurie Gianelli, 52, of Smithtown, was struck by debris from the crash. She, too, was unhurt, police said. The accident occurred shortly after sunset, though police said light was not an issue in the crash.
