A 20-year-old man and his teenaged passenger were killed when their car collided head-on with a landscaping company dump truck in North Bellmore on Monday afternoon.
Nassau County police said Stephen Clark of East Meadow was driving a Honda Accord westbound on North Jerusalem when his car crossed into the eastbound lanes and crashed into an eastbound Mitsubishi truck shortly before 2 p.m.
Police and firefighters extricated Clark and his 19-year-old passenger, Robert Treimanis, also of East Meadow, from the Honda, after they were trapped in the car, authorities said.
The victims were taken to a local hospital, where they were pronounced dead.
The driver of the truck and his two passengers were treated and released for minor injuries at a local hospital. The truck driver was issued traffic tickets for driving without a license and having a suspension on his existing record.
Homicide Squad detectives impounded both vehicles and are continuing the investigation.
