Three Transported To Hospital Following Crash In Southampton Saturday Night

Jan 14, 2015 11:23 AM

A 73-year-old man was airlifted to Stony Brook University Hospital with serious injuries Saturday night after a 17-year-old driver rear-ended him on Bridies Path in Southampton, according to Southampton Town Police.

Authorities said Justin Fisher of Southampton and his passenger, also 17, were speeding south on Bridies Path at around 9 p.m. when they struck a car being driven by Robert Egan of East Moriches, who was pulling out of a driveway.

Mr. Egan had to be flown, via Suffolk County Medevac helicopter, to Stony Brook where he remains in critical condition, according to a relative. Police said earlier this week that they did not know the extent of Mr. Egan’s injuries, originally classifying them as non-life-threatening.

Mr. Fisher and his passenger, who was not identified by police, were taken by ambulance to Southampton Hospital for the treatment of non-life-threatening injuries, according to police.

Officers issued Mr. Fisher a speeding ticket, police said, while also noting that his view could have been obstructed by a small hill in the road.

The North Sea Fire Department also responded to the scene.

What do you expect when the Chief of the Town Police, strip patrol from east of the canal. How about they hire some police officers. They are at a low of 86 personnel . The Town used to have 106. I will not re-elect anyone from the Board of Southampton either, nothing but empty promises. Take a look at the vehicle repair shops, can't even get them to clean there garbage. This Board is not pro-active at all.

I also live in this neighborhood and have notified the SH Town Police Dept. of truck racing and drug use in the cul de sacs of Bridies Path and Old Trail Rd lately. I was told they do not have enough time to patrol the areas and that they will only respond when the activity is occurring
