Cops: Unlicensed driver fled from accident after crashing into house

SoutholdPD - Spring - 500

A Greenport man driving without a license was arrested Monday morning after he crashed his vehicle into a house, Southold Town police said.

The 27-year-old was driving east on Route 48 when he reportedly swerved off the road while trying to avoid hitting another vehicle, officials said.

The driver’s car then slid off the roadway and crashed into a house and a “piece of equipment,” police said.

The driver drove away from the scene and was found soon after in his heavily damaged vehicle with a flat tire driving on its rim, officials said.

He was charged with two violations for leaving the scene of an accident with property damage and unlicensed driving, police said.
