Funeral Scheduled for Virginia Man Killed in East Hampton Crash

Meanwhile, Douglas Schniederman's wife and 16-year-old daughter, as well as the driver of the other vehicle involved, remain hospitalized.

A funeral for Douglas Foster Schneiderman, a well-known developer from Virginia who was killed in a head-on crash in East Hampton on Sunday, will be held on Friday in his hometown, though his wife and 16-year-old daughter remain hospitalized on Long Island.

It remains to be seen whether Elisabeth Schneiderman, 51, and their daughter Rachael Scheiderman will be released from Southampton Hospital in time to attend the services in McLean, VA. According to Priscilla Egan, a hospital spokeswoman, both women are listed in stable condition as of Wednesday morning.

The McLean Patch reported a funeral will be held at Temple Rodef Shalom on Friday at noon. Burial will follow at the King David Cemetery. Jefferson Funeral Chapel in Alexandria is handling all arrangements.

Douglas Scheiderman, 51, was the Vice President of Madison Homes, a real estate development company working around the Washington D.C. metropolitan area since its establishment in 1992. "It is a tragic event and Doug will be greatly missed by everyone at Madison Homes," said Russ Rosenberger, president of Madison Homes.

Meanwhile, East Hampton Town police continue to investigate what caused the crash on Route 114 on Sunday afternoon. A pickup truck driven by 20-year-old East Hampton resident Brian K. Midgett Jr. crossed over the double yellow line and hit Schneiderman's 2005 Volvo, police said.

Midgett, who was airlifted to Stony Brook University Medical Center in serious condition, was listed in good condition on Wednesday morning, according to the Department of Media Relations at Stony Brook.
