A Collision in the Village

Thu, 02/10/2022 - 11:01

On Saturday just after sundown, East Hampton Village police report that 44-year-old Wilson Sandoval-Chida of Hampton Bays, alone in his 2007 Nissan sedan southbound on Main Street just before Mill Road, crossed the double yellow lines into oncoming traffic.

His car struck a 2020 Ford pickup driven by Steven Martinez of East Hampton, who had two passengers with him. Mr. Martinez told police that in trying to avoid the Nissan, he ran up against a stone wall, causing some property damage. No one was injured in the collision.

Mr. Sandoval-Chida, however, was charged with driving while intoxicated. His next court date will be a virtual conference, on March 3. The Nissan was towed by Rapid Recovery; the Ford pickup by Fireplace Auto Collision.
