The car reportedly struck a pole on Hands Creek Road, at the corner of Atlantic Street, around 11:50 p.m.
Two ambulances from the East Hampton Volunteer Ambulance Association responded. One patient was taken to Southampton Hospital. East Hampton Town police were also on hand.
A Medevac helicopter landed at East Hampton Airport.
