Please Stay Safe

EAST END: Proceed with extreme caution on the roads this summer as Dan’s Papers would like to express their concern on the number of fatal accidents happening on East End. Last week, Sister Jacqueline Walsh of Syosset was the victim of a hit-and-run in Water Mill. Police found Sister Walsh alongside Rose Hill Road, where she was pronounced dead. The 2009 Volkswagen Touareg was abandoned about a half-mile from the scene, and it was allegedly driven by a Hispanic man in his early 30s. Investigations are still underway as police are asking the driver, who they have reportedly identified but have not released his name, to turn himself in to the authorities. Last month, Jeffrey Ahn, 17, who lived in New York City and Amagansett, was killed after he was struck by a Lindy’s Taxi vehicle while walking on Old Stone Highway. Suzanne Lavenas, 69, of Montauk, was involved in a motor vehicle accident when her car collided with a pickup truck, as she was attempting to make a turn on South Fox Street. Lavenas was rushed to Southampton Hospital and pronounced dead upon arrival. Frances Berg, 88, who was also in Lavenas’ car, was listed in serious condition.

Please, drive carefully.
