A drunken wrong-way driver rolled his sport utility vehicle onto its roof in the early morning hours on Sunday in Montauk, according to East Hampton Town police.
Detective Lt. Chris Anderson said James A. Vallar, 22, of East Meadow, was arrested on a misdemeanor driving while intoxicated charge after he struck a car on Route 27, between Upland Road and South Delphi Street, at about 5:20 a.m.
The driver of a 2002 Volkswagen said a vehicle in front of her on the highway swerved, and she saw Vallar's 1996 Jeep heading toward her in her lane. She said she didn't remember what happened after that, Anderson said.
Vallar and the driver of the Volkswagen were taken to Southampton Hospital. After he was treated, Vallar was released back into his police custody. He reportedly refused to take a breath test.
The Montauk Fire Department responded to the scene, as well.
The other driver was also treated and released, a spokeswoman for Southampton Hospital said on Monday.
