LIE reopened in both directions

September 25, 2009 7:51:13 AM PDT
The Long Island Expressway has reopened in both directions after a dump truck collision closed the westbound lanes for hours in Lake Success. Newscopter-7 was live over the scene.

The truck apparently careened into the center wall of the highway, forcing an extended cleanup between exits 32 and 33.

Eyewitness News is told four other cars were also involved in the crash, but no serious injuries were reported.

Westbound lanes were closed for hours for a spill cleanup, while one eastbound lane was closed an hour after the crash.

Officials say both the westbound and eastbound lanes have since been reopened.
