Car mows down roadside dinosaurs on Long Island


SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. (AP) - A Long Island man denies a police claim that he was intoxicated when his car smashed into about a dozen roadside dinosaurs.
Newsday says only one dinosaur was still intact after the crash Tuesday in Southampton. It's a 30-foot-long, 10-foot-tall T-Rex.
Larry Schaeffer owns the statue store, Yesterday's Treasures. He laments that the driver went "right through the center of the herd."
Support cables connected the statues to each other. They'd even held up during Superstorm Sandy.
The damage is estimated at $40,000.
The driver, Christopher Spano of Manorville, says he had a problem with his tires and may have been sleepy. He got a ticket to appear July 17 in Town Court.
Schaeffer says the car finally came to a stop in front of a pink elephant.
