One other horse from the same ranch was killed after being struck by a 2005 Peterbilt tractor trailer traveling eastbound on Sunrise Highway in Center Moriches, about one half mile west of Exit 59, police said.
An incumbent commissioner was defeated by two votes in the Tuesday’s Wading River Fire District election, and Manorville elected a new commissioner and approved the creation of a reserve fund.
