Cops: NYC man issued summons for leaving scene of Southold crash

A New York City man who crashed his 2006 Aston Martin convertible into a tree early Sunday morning in Southold was issued a summons for leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident, town police said.

Patrick Mizrahi, 53, was headed westbound on Soundview Avenue near Mount Beulah Avenue shortly after 3 a.m. when he lost control of his car, left the roadway and struck a tree, police said.

He then called a family member to take him to a local hospital for treatment of a shoulder and ankle injury, police said. Hospital staff reported the incident to police.

Excessive speed may have been a contributing factor in the crash, police said.
