UPDATE: 23-Year-Old Dies in Thursday Night Crash

It's still unclear what caused Kelly A. Doroski, of Sag Harbor, to crash into the woods off Route 114 in East Hampton.

Update, 2:30 p.m.: East Hampton Town police are investigating what caused a vehicle to crash into the woods off Route 114 in East Hampton on Thursday evening, claiming the life of a 23-year-old woman.

Kelly A. Doroski, who was from Sag Harbor, but lived in East Hampton, died at Southampton Hospital, after she was extricated from her vehicle.

Detective Lt. Chris Anderson said there is no direct witness to the accident, but that an area resident heard the crash and called 911.

"We really don't know at this point," what caused the accident, Anderson said on Friday morning.

He said she was on her way back to East Hampton from Sag Harbor, traveling south on Route 114, between Whooping Hollow Road and South Breeze Drive, when the accident occurred at about 8:40 p.m.

Anderson said a toxicology report will be done, a standard in all fatal accidents.

Detectives asked that anyone with information about the accident to call 631-537-7575.

Update, 1:45 a.m.: East Hampton Town police confirmed early Friday morning that the driver who crashed into the woods off Route 114 in East Hampton on Thursday evening has died.

Kelly A. Doroski, who was 23 and lived in Sag Harbor, was pronounced dead at Southampton Hospital.

Detectives are still investigating what caused her 2009 Mazda to veer off the roadway and into a wooded area, while headed south on Thursday at about 8:30 p.m.

East Hampton Fire Department's heavy rescue squad extricated her from the vehicle, and the East Hampton Village Volunteer Ambulance Association transported her to the hospital.

Detectives are asking that anyone with information to call police at 631-537-7575.

Doroski is a 2006 graduate of Pierson High School. According to her Facebook page, she is "a stay at home mommy and wife."

No other information was immediately available.

Update, 10 p.m.: East Hampton Town police detectives continue to investigate a crash that sent one person to the hospital on Thursday evening.

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.

Route 114 remains closed in both directions at South Breeze Drive.

Update: East Hampton Town police detectives are investigating the car crash, which is believed to have involved only one vehicle.

Route 114 remains closed at South Breeze Drive.

Previously: The East Hampton Fire Department responded to an accident with an entrapment reported on Route 114, near South Breeze Drive, in East Hampton on Thursday evening at about 8:40 p.m.

The heavy rescue squad worked to free at least one person from a vehicle.

The East Hampton Village Ambulance Association transported at least one person to Southampton Hospital at about 9:05 p.m.

The road was closed at South Breeze Drive.

East Hampton called for help from the Sag Harbor Fire Department's heavy rescue squad, though it seems it was just for backup.

A Medevac helicopter was initially requested, but was cancelled. It was not immediately clear why.

Check back for more information as it becomes available.

if they had a blue light going to this call they are allowed to pass cars! and those cars should know to get out of the way just like when you see an ambulance... obviously they were rushing to save lives not speeding to get to dinner.

Drive up a mountain of a hill not to get hit head on, get in touch with reality. So easy to hide behind unknown... Idiot
Daphne jarret February 08, 2013 at 05:21 AM
Go check out the end of long lane by Stephen Hands Path and tell me where to pull over if a car is driving in my lane head on... Get back to me
Ralebird February 08, 2013 at 05:49 AM
No. Actually a volunteer responding to a call in his private vehicle is required to obey all traffic laws. It is simply a courtesy (and a smart one) to yield to volunteers not operating emergency vehicles.
Daphne jarret February 08, 2013 at 06:09 AM
Thank you ralebird for the truth. Appreciate it. Hopefully A little education for unknown
Crystal Ramirez February 08, 2013 at 06:25 AM
I miss you Kelly!!!!!!
Blanca Femina February 08, 2013 at 07:20 AM
Daphne - I hope you/your family are never the ones they need to get to. Something tells me you'd be wanting them to pass other vehicles at that point, eh? How's that high horse riding? You pull over where you can. There's grass. As for the 23 year old girl who passed away - very sad. Her poor family.
Emily Bee February 08, 2013 at 12:42 PM
Ralebird is correct. Don't believe it, look it up in the vehicle and traffic law. It is a courtesy. It is not a licence to drive like a wild man. A blue light on your private vehicle does not make it an emergency vehicle. If you want to drive like a clown and endanger the public, join Riverhead Raceway!
Daphne jarret February 08, 2013 at 01:03 PM
Thank you Emily.

This is not the place for people to be going on rants. A girl who I grew up with and went to high school with had passed away, she left her family behind, as well as her fiance and their young son together. Please be respectful and be courteous...do not leave comments that are not pertaining to Kelly, please keep the negative comments off of this page. Thank you.
Daphne jarret February 08, 2013 at 01:57 PM
Anonymous, sorry for the rant, I apologize. I did not know the girl had died when I was almost hit head on and wrote my first 2 posts.. My condolences to everyone in pain over this tragic accident.
Sean G February 08, 2013 at 02:55 PM
Damn...goodbye Kelly. R.I.P. Hang in there Max.
Maggie s February 08, 2013 at 04:53 PM
I can't believe your gone. I need to wake up and know that this isn't real. I love you so much Kelly
Shrinkgirl February 08, 2013 at 05:58 PM
Kelly I did not know you. But my prayers and love are sent to you now with each passing snowflake. We will think of you.
Kristina February 08, 2013 at 06:09 PM
My heart goes out to Kelly's family and friends. I'm so sorry to hear this.
Eric February 08, 2013 at 06:29 PM
drinking a driving never mix
Eric February 08, 2013 at 06:31 PM
saddest thing....girl drinks and drives, kills herself in an accident, then almost causes head on crash while selfless responders try to save her. drinking and driving never mix. sad and pointless
Shrinkgirl February 08, 2013 at 06:36 PM
shut up Eric. Save your comments for another time.
maryb February 08, 2013 at 06:38 PM
Eric... are you for real. Please have some respect at this time for her family.
JenniferB February 08, 2013 at 07:12 PM
I remember Kelly riding her bike in our NorthHaven neighborhood when she was a little girl. My condolences to her family and friends. Very sad.
Blanca Femina February 08, 2013 at 07:24 PM
Was she drunk? I'm still curious as to what made her go off the road. I can't imagine what her family - especially her kid(s) - are going through. Horrible.
Erin Carroll February 08, 2013 at 07:26 PM
Have respect. That was one of my best friends. I dare you to tell me you've never done anything wrong in your life. Your timing of making her family and friends feel worse is impeccable. She left behind a very young son, have some respect.
Taylor K. Vecsey (Editor) February 08, 2013 at 07:41 PM
Please see the latest update above. The police do not know what caused the accident. I would encourage everyone to refrain from making judgements before the police have finished their investigation. There is a family mourning the loss of a young woman, who was a mother to a young child. Thank you.
anon February 08, 2013 at 08:16 PM
Love to Max and their child, soo soo sad

Here is a followup to this story, an interview with Kelly's sister Tracy: http://patch.com/A-1LFx

Kelly was my neice and sadly I hardly knew her. Now a simple tragedy has taken her from us all and I will never have the opportunity to know her. She was however my sisters baby and my heart and soul ache for her, for her family and her friends. Kelly is now in a better place. It is us, those left behind who must learn to live on with a void in our lives that can never be filled. Regardless of the cause of this terible accident, it would be nice to omit any speculation from comments. I know the family is hurting enough.
Matty Lester February 09, 2013 at 05:27 AM
if you have facts thats one thing, a disrespectful guess is another, you are wrong, and you should prob find something better to do with your free time then act like a 5 year old in a newsletter chat room.
Evan Rofheart March 01, 2013 at 05:03 AM
When I was an Firefighter / EMT we got in trouble with the Department for speeding, for parking the wrong way on streets, with our personal vehicles etc... could use some more discipline these days.
