Accident Closes Noyac Road On Sunday Evening

Jul 14, 2014 4:36 PM

An unidentified driver struck several bushes lining Noyac Road on Sunday night, causing a stretch of the road to be closed near Elm Street in Noyac for just over an hour.

Southampton Town Police said this week they are still investigating the cause of the single-car accident, which occurred at around 7:15 p.m. and was originally reported to involve multiple vehicles.

On Monday, Town Police Sergeant Susan Ralph said the accident report had not yet been completed, and that it would not likely be finished until Thursday at the earliest. She also said she did not know the extent of the injuries suffered by the driver.

The stretch of Noyac Road that was closed by police was reopened at around 8:30 p.m. on Sunday.

Gee wonder if this had any thing to do with major disater that our wonder highway super is having installed at Cromers. This is more dangerous than it ever was. The coner is 10 times sharper. It is a mess!!! He should be removed from his position do to this disater!!!

On Friday they left the new raised concrete median with a bare minimum orange cone marking its west end, and no new illumination or blinking warning lights or speed-reading electronic signs.

Poor site management in my personal opinion, followed by a reasonably foreseeable consequence. Glad the injuries were not worse.

Were lessons learned?

The accident was not near Cromers

Doesn't "Elm Street" come into Noyac Road from the north right where the exit from Cromers is going to require a new traffic pattern, or is the article wrong? There is a new concrete median going west a bit, with a break or two in it for private driveways, right where Noyac Rd. (eastbound) takes a newly sharper turn to the right.

Whether or not this work contributed to the accident, the new median is almost invisible at night except for the few traffic cones sitting on it at its western ...more

PS -- The new western exit is actually closer to the Whalebone store than to Cromers, but this project is generally referred to as being the Cromers Project IMO.

The driver and her daughter were ok, this could have been a lot worse. They narrowly escaped hitting oncoming traffic and then just missed two trees. Luckily no one was hurt!
