Levittown Man Killed in Crash with Tractor Trailer on LIE, Cops Say

A 37-year-old Levittown man was killed Monday morning on the Long Island Expressway, Nassau County police said.

Reyes-Contereras was pronounced dead at a local hospital about an hour after the crash, police said.

Police did not say if the 45-year-old driver of the tractor trailer suffered any injuries. The transport truck passed a brake-and-safety inspection at the scene, police said.

There is no criminality suspected at this time, according to police.
