Southold Blotter: Five teens injured Southold crash

Five teens were injured in a crash in Southold last Saturday while driving on Cedar Beach Road, according to Southold Town police.

Four of the teens were 17 and one was 15. The crash occurred just after midnight, when dense fog impaired the driver’s ability to see a sharp bend in the road, police said. The car struck a tree and rolled over on its passenger side and the five teens were transported to Eastern Long Island Hospital with minor injuries, officials said.
