A stretch of the Long Island Expressway remains closed during the height of the morning commute due to a deadly crash on Monday, April 5.

The closure is on the eastbound side in Nassau County, at Exit 36E, between New Hyde Park Road and Searingtown Road, in North Hills, and involves an overturned box truck, Nassau County Police said.

The crash, which claimed the lives of both the truck driver and a sole passenger, occurred around 5:30 a.m. and all eastbound lanes remain closed during the accident investigation.
