A driver and passenger were safely removed Monday from their tilted vehicle after it got stuck on a snowbank on the shoulder of the Long Island Expressway, Suffolk County police said.
The driver was traveling in the right-hand eastbound lane near Exit 51 in Dix Hills, police said, when the vehicle got caught up in the snow that had formed a sort of ramp near the concrete barrier.
“Emergency services secured the vehicle, and the two men were escorted out,” a police spokeswoman said. There were no injuries, she said.
The call came in at 12:25 p.m.
