Sunrise Highway eastbound reopens after crashes, cops say

All eastbound lanes near exit 56 on Sunrise Highway have reopened after separate multivehicle collisions Wednesday evening, Suffolk County police said.

Police said a driver heading east on the highway lost control of a sedan, striking another vehicle and a guard rail before ending up in a ditch around 7 p.m.

Around the same time, officers said, a minivan struck the rear of an empty trailer being hauled by a Suburban.

Police responded to the scenes shortly thereafter, authorities said. Officers said nobody was taken to the hospital and there was no call for rescue.
