Austin American-Statesman - - THE SECOND FRONT - Com­piled from wire re­ports

A mas­sive traf­fic pileup on a ma­jor road left one per­son dead and 32 peo­ple in­jured on New York’s Long Is­land, with dozens of ve­hi­cles scat­tered over sev­eral hun­dred yards and some even catch­ing fire. Po­lice said the chaos on the east­bound Long Is­land Ex­press­way in Shirley hap­pened shortly be­fore 3 p.m. on Wed­nes­day. Ae­rial shots from News12 Long Is­land showed at least one trac­tor-trailer and sev­eral cars ap­par­ently dam­aged by fire. The road was closed be­tween Ex­its 65 and 69. Sev­eral hours later, a trac­tor­trailer could still be seen smol­der­ing.
