A Mastic man was arrested after he sideswiped a tractor trailer on the Long Island Expressway Monday in Dix Hills and hit a car, sending his own van rolling over, Suffolk police said.
Corey Harrison, 35, was charged with being an unlicensed operator and second-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, police said.
He and the driver of a Honda were taken to hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries, police said. Harrison was treated at Southside Hospital in Bay Shore, while the Honda driver, 31, was treated at Huntington Hospital, police said. The truck driver was not injured, police said.
Harrison had hit the Mack trailer by Exit 52-Commack Road just before noon, then struck the Honda, police said.
The crash closed the eastbound LIE between exits 51 and 53 for more than two hours, police said.
