A car caught fire after a tire hit it on the Sagtikos State Parkway on Long Island. It happened around 4:20pm on the Sagtikos near Crooked Hill Road in Brentwood.

A car heading southbound on the parkway lost a tire which flew into the northbound lanes, hitting half a dozen vehicles.

One of those vehicles caught fire.

State police say there are no serious injuries.

The northbound lanes of the parkway are shut down, and the southbound side has just one lane open.

Drivers should expect major delays.
