After driving off the westbound shoulder of Ely Brook Road near Hand's Creek Road in Northwest on Friday night, Luis Amon-Segarra's black 2010 Honda Civic hit a tree. East Hampton Town police found the 48-year-old East Hampton resident standing next to the car and asked him to perform sobriety tests.
He failed, they said, and was charged with misdemeanor driving while intoxicated, his first such offense. He spent the rest of the night in police custody and was released following a morning arraignment, with a future date in court.
Darwin Isabel Mayorga-Ramirez of Calverton was similarly charged on Saturday afternoon in Springs. Police said his white 2017 Ford van had swerved over the double yellow lines on Old Stone Highway near Acorn Place and sideswiped a 2015 BMW sedan belonging to Jonda Stilwell of Amagansett. Neither driver was hurt, but the BMW sustained serious damage to its left side and was towed by Fireplace Auto Collision.
Police said Mr. Mayorga-Ramirez, while standing by his car, told them both cars were close to the yellow lines and that they had hit each other. His eyes were bloodshot, however; his speech was slurred, and he was asked to perform the standard field tests, which he failed. He too was held overnight for a morning arraignment; Justice Lisa R. Rana released him with a return court date.
