Slip-Sliding Away on the Ice

Thu, 02/10/2022 - 11:00

There were two minor accidents on local roads in recent days.

An East Hampton Village employee, Paul Anderson, 55, of East Hampton, was plowing a sidewalk on the morning of Jan. 31 when his Takeuchi Skid Loader lost traction. It began to slide backward in the snow, and eventually crashed into an unoccupied 2002 Mercedes-Benz owned by Sharman Peddy, also of East Hampton, parked in the long-term lot off Gingerbread Lane. Mr. Anderson, 55, was not injured.

Close to midnight on Feb. 6, 37-year-old Kyle Herman of East Hampton was alone in a rented 2021 Infiniti S.U.V., headed north on Route 114. He was looking for “the driving trail that leads to Swamp Road,” he later told police, but ended up instead in a sand bunker on the fifth hole of the Sag Harbor golf course. Mr. Herman told an officer he could not see the bunker and drove right into it, causing damage to the S.U.V., which was removed from the sand trap and towed away by Rapid Recovery. Mr. Herman was unhurt.
