A mail carrier was injured in a crash that catapulted him through his truck's windshield in Lloyd Harbor Monday, village police said.

An Audi sedan hit the truck from behind and sent it into a tree on the side of Banbury Lane, Lloyd Harbor Police Sergeant Greg Muller said.

The mail carrier suffered "numerous injuries" in the 3 p.m. crash, which temporarily closed West Neck Road, and was taken to Huntington Hospital.

"He's alive and he's projected to make it," Muller said.
