Three hospitalized after accident at fatal limo crash site in Cutchogue


Three people were sent to the hospital Sunday after they were involved in a car accident at the same intersection of last summer’s tragic limo crash in Cutchogue, according to a press release.

A 23-year-old Jamaica man was driving a 2005 Nissan westbound on Route 48 around 6 p.m. when his vehicle rear ended a 2013 Nissan that was slowing down for the changing traffic light at the intersection of Depot Lane, Southold Town police said.

The driver of the 2013 Nissan was a 19-year-old man also from Jamaica, police said.

Three passengers in the 2005 Nissan suffered minor injuries and were taken to Eastern Long Island Hospital for treatment, police said.

No one was charged in the incident, officials said.

A traffic light was installed at the intersection after four young women were killed and four more were injured July 18 when a limo driver attempted a U-turn as a pickup truck approached the intersection.
