The following is a reported story about an incident that took place during the massive traffic jam in the Hamptons after a car accident took place on Country Road 39.
According to the Southampton Police Department, three women got into a confrontation with a 60-year-old-man and beat him unconscious after a traffic dispute.
At 7 p.m., on the corner of Hill Street and Lee Avenue, the 3 women who were driving in a blue Nissan Maxima and were all dressed in bathing suits, attempted to pass around the 60-year-old man in the middle of the dead stop traffic. The man told the women not to pass him and an argument broke out. The women then exited their vehicle in the middle of the road as did the 60-year-old man, and they began to physically attack him by surrounding him and kicking and punching him.
When I first heard about this, if I’m honest with you, I actually laughed about it because it just seemed so absurd to me, but these three women beat this poor man, who has asked not to be identified, so severely that he needed to be driven to the hospital when police arrived and needed to be woken up after receiving so many blows to his head. The man admitted that he began the argument by not allowing them to pass. The women got away and no license plate number was obtained.
I don’t even know what to say.
What the hell is happening out there? These kinds of incidents are no longer isolated incidents in the Hamptons this summer.
The other day I was driving through Sagaponack and there were two cyclist directly in the middle of the road blocking traffic four cars back. When I pulled up next to the cyclist on the wrong side of the road I yelled out to him, “YOU’RE COMPLETELY BLOCKING TRAFFIC!”
His response was an immediate explicative. I said to him, “YOU’RE GOING TO KILL SOMEBODY OR KILL YOURSELF!”
He gave me the finger and then I just shook my head and drove away. What else can you do?
