One person in a minivan was killed on Wednesday in Valley Stream after the vehicle collided with a "roll up" dump truck, Nassau police said. Two people were taken to a hospital with injuries, police added.

No pedestrian was involved in the accident between the brown 2011 Honda Odyssey and the truck, police said, correcting earlier, preliminary statements as they continue to investigate.

The truck apparently overturned, a spokesman said, but no further information was immediately available. 

Mill and Brookfield roads reopened about 4:45 p.m. They had been closed so investigators could probe the accident, which occurred shortly before 11:30 a.m, police said.
