BAYPORT, NY - On November 19th, a truck traveling on Montauk Hwy. and Snedecor Ave. left the roadway at a high rate of speed, completely removing a hydrant from the ground before striking and mangling a chain link fence. The truck then continued through a 6-ft. sign post before crashing into a home that was under construction.

The driver fled the scene on foot, leaving the work truck behind. SCPD K9 responded to search for the driver. Bayport's chief requested the Town of Brookhaven's tech rescue team to respond to shore up the building.

The driver of the moving billboard for a cesspool company was not located as of yet. No injuries were reported.
