NEW YORK (FOX 5 NEWS) - Traffic along westbound Sunrise Highway near Bohemia Parkway was back to normal Thursday afternoon, hours after what police are calling a chain reaction crash involving 29 vehicles.
Officials say the driver of an empty school bus skidded on ice and overturned. Behind it a FedEx truck jackknifed. What followed was a multi-vehicle wreck.
Twenty-nine cars were involved. Airbags deployed. Some facing the wrong way, others literally bumper to bumper, causing a traffic backup for exits.
A half mile east, Suffolk County police started backing cars off of Sunrise Highway.
Police said at least six people were taken to the hospital. All are expected to survive.
