Crash results in downed utility pole on Flanders Road


A two-car accident on Flanders Road near the Valero gas station resulted in a downed utility pole that was left leaning on electrical wires Monday morning in Riverside.

The accident occurred about 8:45 a.m.

A Riverhead Fire Department official said at least one or two people were transported to a local hospital, but he didn’t know further details. Southampton Town police and Flanders Ambulance volunteers declined to comment at the scene.

The westbound lane of Flanders Road near Ludlam Avenue was closed as police and fire crews cleared the scene.
