Police are investigating a reported hit-and-run in Springs after a man was taken to the hospital last week.
A 44-year-old Springs man was discovered laying in the bushes on Tyrone Drive on Nov. 5 at about 7 p.m. "He believed he may have been struck by a vehicle," Detective Lt. Chris Anderson said on Thursday.
He was taken to Southampton Hospital. First, he was transported by a private vehicle, which stopped at East Hampton Fire Department. The East Hampton Village Volunteer Ambulance then took him the rest of the way. Emergency medical personnel initially called for a Suffolk County Medevac to meet them at the ballfield next to the Bridgehampton Fire Department, but it was then called off.
Anderson wouldn't comment on the extent of the man's injuries, but he confirmed the man was released from the hospital.
There were no eyewitnesses to the alleged accident, but, Anderson said, "Currently, it's under investigation as a hit-and-run."
