Meanwhile, East Hampton Fire Department Chief Tom Bono said his department's heavy rescue squad were able to free the victim of the one-accident within minutes of arriving at the Route 114 accident. He said the vehicle left the roadway and was in the woods, though he wasn't sure exactly how far in it was from the road.

"We popped the back door off," Bono said after he left the accident scene.

He explained that he called for Sag Harbor Fire Department's heavy rescue squad as back up because his department's heavy rescue truck was not working properly at first, though it ended up being used to remove the door. "I wanted Sag Harbor just in case we needed them," he said.

He said further information will come from the police department.
