A man driving on Scuttle Hole Road in Bridgehampton Sunday evening decided to challenge a Ferrari driver to a race — a move that ended with the man being airlifted to the hospital, according to authorities.
The Ferrari driver apparently wanted no part in a race.
“The one car took off in front of the other car and wrecked,” Sgt. John Boden said.
The man, who sideswiped a tree with his Honda, suffered minor trauma, but he was medevaced to Stony Brook University Medical Center via Suffolk police helicopter as a precaution because of a head injury, Boden said.
The crash occurred around 6:40 p.m. and responded to the scene, west of the Butter Lane intersection. It took rescuers a half hour to extricate the victim from the mangled Honda.
Boden said no more information was available at this time. He said he anticipates no further police action or charges.
