East Hampton Town Police reported that on the evening of May 12, Hai Cao of Amagansett did not see a jogger as he turned left in his 2015 Toyota from Cedar Street onto Osborne Lane in East Hampton. Mr. Cao reportedly said to police that his view was limited and by the time he saw the jogger, Tint Juri of East Hampton, crossing from one side of Osborne Lane to the other, he could not avoid hitting him.

Mr. Juri said he did not see the car when he crossed the road to continue running where the sidewalk started. East Hampton Volunteer Ambulance took him to Stony Brook Southampton Hospital for minor bleeding on his lower arm.

Stopped in traffic on Montauk Highway last Thursday morning near Napeague Meadow Road in Amagansett, Jerry Uribe of Montauk was waiting to turn left into the Ocean Colony Beach Resort when Kimberly Ovando, also of Montauk, was "attempting to get something out of her eye," she told police, and rear-ended Mr. Uribe's 2008 Jeep with her 2011 Nissan.

Mr. Uribe's passenger, Victor Ortega, was taken to Stony Brook Southampton Hospital in an Amagansett ambulance for back pain. Ms. Ovando was also taken there, complaining of knee pain. Marshall and Sons towed Mr. Uribe's Jeep, and Hammer Towing and Transport hauled away Ms. Ovando's Nissan.

On Saturday at 8 a.m., as Karl Ulysse of Miller Place was driving east on Montauk Highway near Wainscott Northwest Road, he was "listening to an audio book and fell asleep while driving," he told police.

Mr. Ulysse's vehicle crossed into the westbound lane and side-swiped Cesar Loaizapineda's 2003 Dodge, which then struck a road sign. Mr. Ulysse also struck a 2014 Jeep, whose owner was listed by police as M. Cardenas Rodriguez.
The two westbound cars were removed by Rob's Towing and Transport and Mr. Ulysse's 2018 Ford by Bonac Buy and Sell. Mr. Cardenas Rodriguez complained of shoulder pain and Mr. Loaizapineda, as well as his 12-year-old passenger, complained of pain all over. The Bridgehampton Volunteer Ambulance Company took them to Stony Brook Southampton Hospital.
