Three people were taken to ELIH just before 6:30 a.m. on Sept. 28 after a two-car accident at the intersection of Manhanset Avenue and Route 25 in Greenport, according to reports.

Police said Warren Horton, 64, was in the eastbound lane making a left turn when Alexander Lott, 17, struck his car from the rear.

Mr. Lott told police he was unable to stop his car in time to avoid the collision because the road was wet.

Both drivers and Mr. Lott’s passenger, 19-year-old Matthew Miller, were taken to the hospital by the East Marion and Greenport fire department rescue squads.
