UPDATE: Sunrise Highway Crash Cleared; Traffic Flowing Normally


UPDATE: 9:30 a.m.

The two vehicles involved in the Wednesday morning accident on Sunrise Highway have been removed from the roadway’s shoulder and traffic is flowing normally.

UPDATE: 8 a.m.

A non-fatal two-car crash Wednesday morning near exit 66 on Sunrise Highway has eastbound traffic congested on the South Fork.

No lanes were closed because of the accident, New York State police said, and both cars have been pulled over to the shoulder, but eastbound traffic remains plugged near the Shinnecock Canal on Sunrise as well as Montauk Highway as drivers are seeking an alternative route.

The accident occurred at about 7:07 a.m., according to state police, but the cause remains unknown. The trooper on the scene has not reported how many people were in each vehicle or what injuries, if any, were incurred.

No other agencies are responding to the incident and the trooper on the scene is waiting for tow trucks to remove the vehicles from the side of the road.

UPDATE: 7:50 a.m.

New York State Police said the crash was minor, and the road remains open. There are significant delays, however, as traffic moves past the scene.
