Speaking to reporters at the scene, the police spokesman, Insp. Kenneth Lack, said witnesses told police the truck was speeding before the crash.

Authorities said they suffered serious, but non-life-threatening injuries and were being treated at local hospitals. The driver of the pickup truck was killed in the collision. A group of neighbors were gathered near the crash site Tuesday morning, many saying they were shocked and scared, as they watched emergency crews maneuver through the mangled wreckage to remove the injured parties. I heard a huge thud a bang it wasnt like screeching of tires, it was just like a huge bang, neighbor John Fiore said. I was in my den, which backs up to Roslyn Road and I heard it. Fiore said he and his neighbors were very, very concerned about speed in their neighborhood, noting a residential development is just feet from the crash site. Were careful, he said. Its very scary, especially if you have children. You have them running around.
