Crash Sends Woman to Hospital

Posted on 24 June 2009

On Sunday, June 21,  Lancha Dupont, 51, of Sag Harbor, driving a late model SUV in the early morning hours collided with a tree on Madison Street in front of the Corcoran Real Estate office in Sag Harbor. Police arrived around 1:49 a.m. and found the front end of the vehicle destroyed, and about 12 feet of the newly-restored historical wrought-iron fencing that surrounds the Civil War monument torn up.  

The driver was transported by ambulance to Stony Brook University Medical Center. Sag Harbor Village Police say the driver couldn’t be airlifted to the hospital due to adverse weather conditions.

Police investigating did not detect evidence of alcohol at the scene, and, considering Dupont’s injuries, determined a blood alcohol test unnecessary, said Sag Harbor Police Chief Tom Fabiano. The cause of the accident remains unclear, but police say it is still under investigation and expect unspecified charges to be filed.

    Why does this story give NO name for the driver and no blood alcohol reading? Shame on you SH Express!
