Town of Southold Supervisor Scott Russell.
Southold Town Supervisor Scott Russell was involved in a single-car crash Monday night in his hometown of Cutchogue, but walked away without any serious injuries, Southold Town police said.

Russell was driving a 2014 Ford Escape south on Skunk Lane just after 9:30 p.m. when wet leaves caused the vehicle to slide off the roadway, police said. After striking shrubbery, the vehicle rolled and came to a rest on the driver’s side, police said.

The supervisor successfully extricated himself from the vehicle after the crash, police said.

Members of the Cutchogue Fire Department treated Russell at the scene.

Phone calls made to Southold Town Hall went unanswered.
