Tue, 11/10/2020 - 08:06

On Monday at approximately 1 p.m., a tractor-trailer left the road in Water Mill and hit 13 vehicles in the Corrigan’s Service Station parking lot on Montauk Highway. The multi-vehicle crash did not cause any serious injuries, according to a Southampton Town Police Department release.

Shahab Fadavi-Akhavan, 27, of Sagaponack was driving a 2020 Chevrolet Traverse eastbound on Montauk Highway by Corrigan’s Service Station when the vehicle in front stopped short, according to the police report. Mr. Fadavi-Akhavan then braked suddenly, causing the vehicle immediately behind him, a 2020 Toyota Tundra, driven by Edwin Cardona-Solis, 34, of Riverhead to strike Mr. Fadavi-Akhavan’s rear fender, and push him into oncoming westbound traffic.

As a result, police said, a 1983 tractor-trailer belonging to Long Island Crane, driven by Ernest Dimatteo, 30, of North Babylon crashed head-on into Mr. Fadavi-Akhavan's vehicle. The truck careened off the road and into the station parking lot. Mr. Fadavi-Akhavan suffered minor injuries and was taken to Stony Brook Southampton Hospital in a Bridgehampton Fire Department ambulance.
