On May 31 at approximately 6:50 pm, deputies were dispatched to Route 22 just north of Sodom Rd. in the Town of Southeast for a motor vehicle accident involving a car and a motorcycle. A preliminary investigation has determined that a vehicle being operated by 52-year-old Christine Bueti of Katonah was making a left turn out of a restaurant driveway to head southbound on Route 22 when it was struck by a northbound motorcycle, which was operated by 22-year-old Marvin Espanaventura. He was transported to Danbury Hospital in serious condition by Brewster Ambulance.
