A single car accident in Jamesport Saturday morning sent one man to a local hospital, Jamesport Fire Officials said. 

The vehicle was traveling eastbound on Sound Avenue when it appeared to cross the westbound lane, struck a fire hydrant and then a tree head-on at about 7:18 a.m. east of Manor Lane, officials said.

Riverhead and Southold Police officers responded along with Riverhead Volunteer Ambulance members, who treated the man and transported him to a local hospital. Fire officials did not provide an update on the man’s condition.

The Riverhead Town Water Authority responded to the scene to assist with shutting down the leaking hydrant.
