It was a fun night featuring one of country music's biggest stars. I was one of 17,000 fans who attended Luke Bryan's “Huntin’ Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day Tour” sold out show last night at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater, Long Island.
A few hours after the show ended, a tractor trailer carrying tour equipment crashed into into the Sunrise Highway overpass on the Wantagh State Parkway in Wantagh, Long Island, NY
Ordinarily, tractor-trailers are not permitted on parkways, but special permits are issued for vehicles associated with performances at the theater.
The accident happened approx. 2:30 a.m. this morning under the overpass just south of the exit ramp leading to westbound Sunrise Highway.
Police report closed at least two lanes of the northbound Wantagh for cleanup and removal for over 4 hours until about 6:50 a.m.
There were no immediate reports of injuries.
