Four teens driving in a Nissan Altima early this afternoon were sent to Peconic Bay Medical Center with minor injuries after the driver veered off Peconic Bay Boulevard and into the woods, flipping the car on its side.

The driver of the car, a 16-year-old male, told police he swerved off the road to avoid a deer as he was driving eastbound just east of Sunup Trail in Aquebogue.

The passengers in the car included three other males, two more 16-year-olds and one 19-year-old.

Police said one arrest was made at the scene, but declined to provide details.

The Altima rolled onto its side during the accident, which occurred about 12:45 p.m. An open black trash bag was spotted next to the car, with a couple of Heineken bottles; however, police would not comment on circumstances leading to the crash.

Police said the accident is under investigation.
