Driver and Pedestrian Injured in Separate Accidents

Thu, 08/04/2022 - 08:20

Two accidents on East Hampton Town roads this week resulted in injuries.

On Friday afternoon, in slow-moving eastbound traffic on Route 114, Michael T. Froehlich of Lake Ronkonkoma, 43, complained of head pain and needed an ambulance ride to Stony Brook Southampton Hospital after his 2014 GMC pickup truck was rear-ended. Peter Sayia of East Hampton, 42, was behind the wheel of the 2022 Toyota pickup that struck Mr. Froehlich's truck. Mr. Sayia told police he had been braking in the heavy traffic but was unable to avoid a collision.

Christopher Pena of East Moriches, 61, was westbound in a 2015 Honda on Montauk Highway near South Elder Street in Montauk at 12:30 a.m. Saturday when Jonathan Casimino Fabien "ran into the roadway," Mr. Pena told police. Mr. Casimino Fabien, a 24-year-old Bronx resident, said he'd hit the crosswalk button, but then entered the road without looking out for oncoming traffic. He sustained a cut on his forehead and complained of neck pain, and was taken by ambulance to Stony Brook Southampton Hospital.

An accident report in last week's Star incorrectly described a collision in Wainscott on July 24, at around 4:30 p.m. According to police, David L. Shorenstein of New York City, driving a 2021 BMW, ran a stop sign at West Gate Road and Exeter Lane, striking a 2017 Land Rover belonging to Natasha Deckmann, also of New York. There was a 5-year-old passenger in Ms. Deckmann's car, not Mr. Shorenstein's. Mr. Shorenstein and the child were uninjured, but Ms. Deckmann had a minor cut on her face. There was one ticket given after the accident, and it went to Ms. Deckmann, who had been using her phone's GPS app, according to police.
