A serious motor vehicle accident at Ferry and Fresh Pond roads in North Haven resulted in one woman being airlifted to Stony Brook University Hospital on Wednesday morning.

According to Sag Harbor Fire Department Police Chief Pete Garypie, police and fire departments were notified around 9 a.m. that a cesspool truck driving in the northbound lane and a Jeep traveling in the southbound lane on Ferry Road collided, although it was still being investigated by Southampton Town Police how the accident occurred. The lone passenger of the Jeep, a woman, was extracted by members of the fire and police departments and airlifted to Stony Brook University Hospital, said Garypie. While the driver of the truck was not transported to a hospital by the Sag Harbor Volunteer Ambulance Corp., Chief Garypie said he was talking to his employer about getting checked out at a hospital.

As of 11 a.m. on Wednesday, the Lance Corporal Haerter Veterans Memorial Bridge remained closed to traffic while Southampton Town Police investigated the scene of the accident.

    An Absolute shame; This is the Second major accident on that stretch of Road this summer. The speed limit of 40 between Sag Harbor and the end of Long Beach Road (beggining of Noyak), is just too high. Cars and Trucks continually travel at 50mph+. It has turned into an expressway for cars and Trucks travelling East.
    Long Beach Rd is one of the most picturesque stretches of roads on the East End. It’s only a matter of time before a cyclist or a pedestrian is killed. I have attempted to walk that road several times, you would think you were walking on the LIE with a 3 inch strip of paint protecting you from a speeding truck. It is not uncommon to see Trucks and cars drifting into the bike lanes as they stare out to the water. Lower the speed limit before another person gets killed!!!

    This woman is my niece… she was seriously injured but is expected to make a full recovery. She has some horrendous injuries to her leg and needs surgeries and much therapy. Please pray for her and her family. She has young children who need her. Thanks to all.
