The eastbound lane of Main Road in Aquebogue is closed to traffic due to a single-car accident near Vineyard Caterers. Eastbound traffic is being diverted north on Church Lane.
A westbound pickup truck crossed the roadway and crashed into the woods on the south side of Main Road at about 7:45 a.m., police said. It appeared the driver’s medical condition was a factor in the accident, according to police. The driver was the sole occupant of the vehicle. He was transported to Peconic Bay Medical Center by Riverhead Volunteer Ambulance Corps.
The eastbound lane will remain closed from Church Lane to Tuthills Lane while the accident scene is cleared, police said.
