Deer Hit, and a Bicyclist Too

Thu, 06/17/2021 - 08:35

Deer were in the headlights this week, causing three accidents in quick succession. One resulted in injury, sending 40-year-old E. Bonillabeernard of Ronkonkoma to Stony Brook Southampton Hospital for chest pain. An Amagansett ambulance took him there on Saturday at 6:45 a.m. after his 2017 Toyota hit a deer. It happened on the Napeague stretch, on Montauk Highway near Dolphin Drive.

The other two deer run-ins took place Friday, the first at 10 p.m. on Jenny's Path near Stokes Court in East Hampton, then half an hour later in Montauk on the highway near Cemetery Road.

Another recent accident involved a bicyclist, 79-year-old Lynn Sherr of U.N. Plaza in Manhattan. East Hampton Village police said she was attempting a left turn off Montauk Highway onto Georgica Road on June 5 at 11:30 a.m., but witnesses said the cars behind her did not yield. Amy Feinstein, 56, of Central Park West, Manhattan, driving a 2020 Porsche, hit Ms. Sherr from behind, later claiming she had not seen Ms. Sherr before she made a sudden turn. She was taken to Stony Brook Southampton by village ambulance to be evaluated for head trauma, though police said none was visible.
