A rollover accident in Calverton sent two men to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries Wednesday afternoon.

The two men were driving a black Nissan Sentra SR sedan southbound on Manor Road about 2:30 p.m. when the car flipped and came to rest on its side, police at the scene said.

Police said they believe wet roads may have played a part in the accident.

Riverhead firefighters and ambulance personnel were called to scene to treat the victims. Firefighters had to cut off the roof of the vehicle to free the passenger of the sedan, who was unable to escape from the wreck on his own.

The two victims were taken to Peconic Bay Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

Officials briefly closed Manor Road between Route 25 and Middle Road. The road was reopened about 3 p.m. as towing crews removed the wreckage.
