A Laurel man is being treated for “traumatic injuries” after his Jeep overturned several times in a crash along Route 48 in Peconic early Sunday morning, Southold Town police said. 

Adam Bishop, 33, was operating a 1993 Jeep Wrangler westbound shortly after midnight when the vehicle left the roadway for unknown reasons, entered the median and overturned several times, police said.

The crash occurred about 500 feet west of Cabots Woods Lane, police said.

Mr. Bishop was treated at the scene by Southold Fire Department rescue for multiple traumatic injuries and flown to Stony Brook University Hospital by a Suffolk County police helicopter, town police said.

The jeep was impounded for safety checks.
