Flanders, NY (December 14, 2020) – Around 2:27 p.m. on Monday afternoon, December 14, three people were injured in a head-on crash in Flanders.

According to the Southampton Town Police, the accident occurred on Flanders Road around the area of Bay Avenue. At the time, 77-year-old Edward Sorenson was driving a Subaru westbound with his passenger, 57-year-old Gearlyn O’Brien. His vehicle collided with a 25-year-old Jamel Mercer’s Chevrolet Impala headed eastbound. The vehicles collided head-on.

Both Sorensen and O’Brien were injured as a result of the accident. They were transported to the Stony Brook Hospital for treatment of their injuries, though their conditions are not yet known.
