WOODBURY, NY — A crash snarled traffic Thursday on Jericho Turnpike in Woodbury. The Syosset Volunteer Fire Department was called around noon Thursday for a crash on the westbound lanes of the turnpike.

Firefighters found a two-car crash and one of the vehicles left the roadway, smashing through a sign for state Route 135, also known as the Seaford-Oyster Bay Expressway. The vehicle came to a rest on a guardrail.

No one was hurt. A gas tank ruptured, spilling over 10 gallons of gas onto the roadway.

A hazardous materials team with the Nassau County Fire Marshal’s office was called to stop the leak, as was the Hicksville Volunteer Fire Department. A sand truck was also called to the wreck to pour sand on the roadway.

The westbound lanes of the turnpike were for about an hour, backing up traffic up into Suffolk County.

Below are photos from the wreck.
