SYOSSET, NY — A pickup truck caught fire Monday afternoon on the Long Island Expressway, destroying the vehicle and damaging a luxury sedan.
Around 3 p.m. Monday, the Syosset Volunteer Fire Department and a dual response engine from the Jericho Volunteer Fire Department were sent to the eastbound lanes of the expressway at South Oyster Bay road in Syosset after receiving a report of a flatbed truck with a truck and a car ablaze, officials said.
Two lanes of the expressway were closed while crews extinguished the flames, snarling traffic for miles, officials said. The pickup truck was destroyed and a BMW sedan was heavily damaged. No one was hurt.
