Two vehicles collided at the intersection of Route 25A and Mt. Sinai-Coram Road, causing one car to crash into a home on the corner at around 11 p.m. Tuesday. It was the second time the home was struck by a car this year.
According to Elliot Perry of the Mt. Sinai Fire Department, a red Suzuki spun into the home, causing only minor damage. The second car came to rest in the middle of 25A opposite the new TD Bank.
A motorcycle rider is in serious condition after colliding with a car and being eject from his bike at around 9:15 p.m. Tuesday night near Oakland Ave. on Route 25A in Miller Place.
Miller Place Fire Department Chiefs said they found a patient laying about 20 feet from the actual accident scene when they arrived. The MPFD EMS and Port Jeff Volunteer Ambulance paramedics worked diligently on the patient, according to Miller Place First Assistant Chief Kyle Markott.
Since his death in November, the name Joseph DiBernardo Jr. – "Joey D" – is one that lives in the minds and hearts of his family and friends in the Setauket and Miller Place communities. Now, it's a name that will also be memorialized on the FDNY's "Wall of Honor," a place of honor for New York City firefighters who have died in the line of duty.
The FDNY announced Monday that Fire Commissioner Salvatore J. Cassano made the decision to add DiBernardo's name to the Wall of Honor based on an in-depth review of DiBernardo's medical history.
The Town of Brookhaven has formed a bipartisan committee that will help the town complete an important task: municipalities are required by law every ten years to re-examine council district boundaries.
Since 2012 marks ten years since the town adopted a system of council districts, that has to happen this year, by Dec. 15. To help in the process, the committee has scheduled a series of six public hearings. The second council district hearing was held Tuesday in Shoreham but was attended by just a handful of community members, and none from the Miller Place-Rocky Point area.
