Gennaro Giugliana, 68, of Riverhead called East Hampton Town police on the morning of June 8 to report he had rear-ended another car at the Montauk Highway-Wainscott Northwest Road traffic light. His 2018 Volkswagen sport-utility vehicle ran into a 2015 Toyota pickup truck belonging to Juan Bremon-Baez, 54, of East Hampton, he reported.

Both drivers sustained injuries. Mr. Bremon-Baez had minor bleeding; Mr. Guigliana reported back pain. They both declined medical attention.

In Montauk last Thursday afternoon, Jacqueline Turcios of Freeport, 30, was crossing Carl Fisher Plaza when a 2019 Chevrolet pickup driven by James Grimes of Montauk, 64, sideswiped her as it turned left from Main Street.

Mr. Grimes, who said he had been moving very slowly at the time, told police he did not see the woman. Ms. Turcios fell on her right side and was taken by Montauk ambulance to Stony Brook Southampton Hospital, which released her after treatment for shoulder pain.
