Two recent car accidents on East Hampton Town and Village roads resulted in injuries, including a suspected concussion suffered by an 8-year-old girl in a crash on the afternoon of Nov. 9.
The girl was taken by ambulance to Stony Brook Southampton Hospital after the collision, which occurred at Accabonac Road and Collins Avenue. According to a police report, Anna Jahoda of East Hampton, 82, drove through the intersection without stopping at the stop sign, and collided with a 2007 Honda sedan being driven by Maria Rivera Pizanga, 25, also of East Hampton,
in whose car the young girl was a
passenger. The impact reportedly caused Ms. Jahoda’s 2007 Jeep S.U.V. to also strike two parked cars. There were no other injuries, and both Ms. Jahoda’s car and Ms. Rivera Pizanga’s car needed to be towed away.
On the morning of Nov. 5, East Hampton Town and Village police were called to the scene of a vehilce hitting the train trestle on Daniel’s Hole Road near Stephen Hand’s Path. Witnesses reported an injured man lying in the road, but by the time police arrived, the man had been moved onto the shoulder. With bleeding cuts on his head, he was taken by ambulance to the hospital. No further information was available.
