4:15 p.m.According to Southampton Village Police Detective Sergeant Herman Lamison, speed was a factor in the crash. Det. Sgt. Lamison said he believes the 2009 Lexus CS350 exceeded the 25 mph speed limit heading west on Hill Street, but could not say by how much. Mr. White was in the front passenger seat.
It is still unknown whether drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash as no toxicology report has yet been completed, since the crash is still in early stages of investigation.
Mr. Gumbs and Mr. Bess have not yet been released from Brookhaven Memorial and Stony Brook University hospitals, respectively, and still remain in stable condition with “multiple broken bones and other serious but not life-threatening injuries,” Det. Sgt. Lamison said.
