2 Accidents Snarl County Road 39 Traffic Tuesday Morning

One involves Suffolk County sheriff's office vehicle, according to police.

Two separate motor vehicle accidents on County Road 39 Tuesday morning — one of which reportedly involved a sheriff's deputy's car — have slowed the eastbound commute.

The first accident occurred some time before 7:45 a.m. and the left eastbound lane was closed near Tuckahoe Lane as a white SUV was removed by a wrecker. Southampton Town Police Sgt. Michael Joyce said the Suffolk County sheriff's office is handling the incident, because a sheriff's deputy's vehicle was involved, and police do not have any further details.

Then around 8 a.m., a second apparently minor accident occurred on County Road 39, to the east of the Inlet Road intersection. Joyce said that police are on scene now, and he could not immediately offer any details.

A police vehicle was partially in the left eastbound lane at the accident scene, and traffic was backed up.

I completely agree about the King Kullen. 2000 cars will create a nice slow down on Cty Road 39 and thereby decrease the number of accidents. New slogan folks: Build the King Kullen and save lives. Fight the King Kullen and cause more vehicular deaths. That is the simple truth.

No, ralebird, the, as marybeth stated, DEVELOPER said 2000 cars a day. There is currently NOTHING at that location, which means there are currently ZERO cars entering that location. Therefore, 2000 cars a day is actually a 2000% increase. How long have you been working for Mr. Morrow?

BS. Thank you for the BS

"Frostina" a/k/a "rale bird" and sooooo many other names proves my point by riffing on my name: He needs to create his authentication and identity by glomming onto others. I am going have to get out my lint brush to flick off this persistent piece of dust.

If anyone would care to have an adult conversation regarding the merits of the proposal, I'd be interested in participating but I did my schoolyard namecalling decades ago and refuse to lower myself to the level of Faustina who has been disqualified by his or her own keyboard. Next!
