No one was seriously injured in a multi-vehicle accident on East Hampton's Main Street Tuesday afternoon.
The pile-up, which spilled onto the sidewalk in front of the Huntting Inn in the village, happened just after 4 p.m. The driver of a Honda sport utility vehicle, which was towing a travel trailer used for camping, either fell asleep at the wheel or experienced a medical emergency while heading east, East Hampton Village Police Capt. Tony Long said.
The Honda hit a Range Rover that was also heading east. The impact caused the trailer to become disconnected from the Honda. The Range Rover and the trailer also hit a Volvo, which may have been parked on in front of the Huntting Inn at the time. Police were still investigating.
A street light was also taken down in the crash.
The travel trailer camper was disconnected from the Honda in the crash.
All three of the ambulances from the East Hampton Village Ambulance Association responded to the scene and transported patients to Stony Brook Southampton Hospital, but no serious injuries were reported. Police said most patients were taken for precautionary reasons. One of the vehicles were carrying two small children.
Traffic in the eastbound lanes on Main Street, which is part of Montauk Highway, was diverted down David's Lane while police cleared the scene.
Captain Long said he did not anticipate any criminal charges being filed. The names of those involved in the crash were not immediately available.

In 1971 J. Standard Baker Quoted " Drivers Towing Trailers Are Four (4) Times As Unsafe As Those In Cars Alone!
So many times these accidents happen then we call the TV stations and the New's Organization that covered the story. We educate and tell them why over 500 are killed a year now...why over 35,000 will be injured and over 50,000 vehicles and or trailers will be destroyed only for them to "SQUASH" the story.
Once again we made contact with the reporter her e mail is TKV@EHSTAR.com will she also "Collude" to hide why for some reason the Government is trying to suppress and destroy our cause and family?
Congressman Cantor Lied
Congressman King Lied
In Fact all political leaders who know about our cause have "Colluded" to destroy our cause. Why?
Since 1975 Over 28,000 dead.....Since 1988 Over 1,000,000 Injured and all we get is suppression and destruction of our cause.
This reporter needs to ask questions:
Weight of Camper including all the furniture and appliances and personal items like clothing.
What Class Of Hitch On Honda Pilot
What Size Ball
Anti Sway Bars Used
When was the Camper last inspected?
When was the Vehicle Hitch System inspected?
Was it an "After Market Hitch"
Does the Honda Pilot have a Factory Installed "Tow Package"
So many questions and we are demanding the media start to ask the same questions we have been asking for over 15 years!
Even more evidence that people who two lie.....and always say "Medical Emergency" hmmmmmm towing capacity of a Honda Pilot 3,500 He was never trained to tow...and he was towing a trailer that is well over 8,000 pounds and transporting TWO ( Propane Tanks and guess what everybody....he is not being charged with nothing. That's the point....people who tow have diplomatic immunity on their actions and that is why the industry hates me so much.....https://www.easthamptonstar.com/police-courts/2020212/crash-east-hamptons-main-street-involved-three-vehicles-camper
