Shortly before 0700 on Friday, September 15, Southold Fire Department was dispatched for a 16/23 MVA with wires down on Route 48 at the intersection of Goldin Lane. Responding vehicles found a Jeep Cherokee lodged against a tree with its driver and sole occupant sitting outside the vehicle. The driver, who was transported to Eastern Long Island Hospital with non life threatening injuries, reported that he had swerved to avoid a deer before impacting the tree. The deer could not be found and was thus unavailable for comment. Photos by Fred Lee.
