A 34-year-old Greenport boat captain and one of his two passengers were injured Sunday afternoon after the man’s pleasure boat ran aground in Shinnecock Bay, Southampton Town police said.

Authorities said the 40-foot vessel “Satisfactory” ran aground on a sandbar about 6:30 p.m., causing injuries to the people aboard the ship. Captain Gregory Nissen was taken to Southampton Hospital by Hampton Bays ambulance volunteers for treatment of a “possible head injury,” according to a police press release.

One of the passengers, 28-year-old Gregory Soros of Shelter Island, was also injured and reportedly lost consciousness during the crash. He was taken to a local hospital for rib and potential head injuries, police said.

A third passenger was uninjured, officials said.

Southampton Town Bay Constables and the U.S. Coast Guard both responded to the scene and removed the crashed boat, police said.
