UPDATE: 5:35 p.m.

Police said Speonk-Riverhead Road was reopened by 12 p.m. on Monday.

Flanders resident Ron Fisher said his vehicle was involved in the accident, though he was not in the 2011 Kia Sportage at the time.

Mr. Fisher, the owner of Fisher Signs and Shirts and a member of the Riverhead School Board, who previously served as president of the Flanders, Riverside, and Northampton Community Association, or FRNCA, explained that he lent his vehicle to another member of FRNCA, a woman who he did not identify, to make a bank deposit.

Mr. Fisher said the woman was T-boned at a very low speed as she passed the Suffolk County Community College campus.

"She was startled," Mr. Fisher said on Monday. “She had never been in an accident before.”

According to Mr. Fisher, the woman was taken to Peconic Medical Center for X-rays and an evaluation, and has since gone home.

Police did not have any further information on Monday evening.
