Just after 10am on Wednesday, Center Moriches Fire Department was dispatched to an auto accident with injuries on Montauk Highway just west of Wilcox Avenue at the Long Island Railroad Overpass.

Upon arrival, first responders found a tractor on its side in the roadway. The truck which was heading west on Montauk Highway struck the 11'6" LIRR overpass and flipped over into the oncoming lane.

While firefighters worked to contain a fuel spill and secure the tractor trailer, EMS providers evaluated the driver of the truck who was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries.

Montauk Hwy was shut down for several hours while crews work to upright the truck and remove it from the roadway.
