An SUV hit a snowy patch of road in Mattituck and crashed off the road, flipping onto its roof Tuesday evening, fire officials said.

The driver and female passenger of the car both escaped without serious injury.

The vehicle was westbound on Sound Avenue when it skidded and rolled off the road about 5 p.m. across the street from Macari Vineyard, fire officials said. Southold police and Mattituck firefighters and rescue teams were called to the scene, and found that the driver was unhurt.

The woman did not complain of any injuries, but was taken to Peconic Bay Medical Center for observation, said assistant fire chief James Rugnetta.

Sound Avenue was closed between Bergen Avenue and Cox Neck Road as the crashed SUV was towed from the scene and town crews plowed and salted the road.
