A Southold Police bay constable was involved in a two-vehicle collision at the intersection of Bayview Avenue and West Mill Road in Mattituck shortly after 3 p.m. Thursday.

Police said the crash occurred when a Dodge Challenger driven by Shane Alexander, 49, of Mattituck was heading west on Bayview Avenue and attempted to make a U-turn at the intersection and failed to see a police Dodge pickup, driven by Bay Constable Andrew Epple, 50, who was heading southbound on West Mill Road.

The Mattituck and Cutchogue Fire Department  Rescue Squads responded. Mattituck brought Mr. Epple to Peconic Bay Medical Center and the Cutchogue squad transported Mr. Alexander to Eastern Long Island Hospital. Police said both appeared to have non-life threatening injuries
