East Hampton Man Killed in Crash With Bus

A 27-year-old East Hampton man was killed when his SUV skidded on black ice and crashed head-on into a Suffolk County Transit bus in Water Mill early Friday morning.

Southampton Town Police said Cesar Marin was driving a Chevrolet Trailblazer westbound on Montauk Highway when he lost control of his truck and veered into the eastbound lane, hitting the bus shortly before 7 a.m.

Marin was pronounced dead at the scene. The bus driver was taken to Southampton Hospital, where he was treated and released for non-life-threatening injuries.

Police impounded the SUV but no criminal charges are expected to be filed. Another vehicle crashed after hitting the same black ice 10 minutes prior, but no injuries occurred in that case.
