Long Island Expressway Reopened After Incident with Pedestrian at Exit 53

Suffolk County, NY – Authorities reported a major collision on the Long Island Expressway that halted traffic in both directions during peak hours on Monday. According to Suffolk County Police, the incident took place at Exit 53, involving multiple vehicles that led to severe injuries.

The accident, which occurred shortly before 5 p.m. in the westbound lanes, required immediate medical attention. Emergency services, including a medical helicopter, were dispatched to the scene to assist and transport those injured. The eastbound lanes of the expressway were temporarily shut down to accommodate the landing and takeoff of the medical helicopter, and were later reopened to the public.

As of the latest update, the police have not provided specific details on the number of vehicles or individuals involved, nor on the extent of the injuries suffered. There was, however, no immediate information available regarding when westbound lanes would be accessible again to drivers. Investigators are currently examining the scene to determine the cause of the accident and whether any charges will be filed.

Drivers in the area faced significant delays and were advised to seek alternative routes until further notice. The closure of the expressway for the investigation and emergency response created extensive traffic backups, disrupting the evening commute for thousands.

Local authorities are urging witnesses or anyone with information about the accident to come forward to assist with the ongoing investigation.
