WYANDANCH, N.Y. — Four police officers were among those injured in a crash on Long Island on Tuesday.
It happened around 2:15 p.m. at Straight Path and Washington Avenue in Wyandanch.
As CBS2’s Carolyn Gusoff reports, Suffolk County Police have not yet released details, but they do say they are investigating a vehicle involved in two hit-and-run crashes, one of which involved a police vehicle.
Multiple vehicles were damaged, and at the scene, at least two vehicles were overturned.
“I heard cops and sirens … I came out, saw a car on fire and I saw a victim laying on the street, and a police helicopter landed across the field and escorted two people to the hospital,” one witness said.
A driver, a pedestrian and four officers were taken to a local hospital with injuries. The officers injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
The investigation is ongoing.
