Syosset and Plainview firefighters freed a man from the wreckage of a two-car crash on the Long Island Expressway early Saturday, firefighters said.
Firefighters from both departments responded to the 4:30 a.m. crash on the eastbound LIE near the the Manetto Hill Road exit in Plainview. Firefighters found a man inside one of the cars, which had plowed into a retaining wall. The driver of the second car was not trapped.
Syosset firefighters used a variety of hydraulic tools to tear open both passenger doors and the center post while emergency crews attended to the trapped man inside.
The man was freed quickly and transported to an area hospital, authorities said. The driver of the second vehicle was also treated at a hospital. Their conditions could not be learned.
