An update on a crash reported on yesterday has come in. The police say that two people have been arrested after a car crash that happened on Long Island. The crash occurred near the JFK airport and left two people dead and five other people injured.
Police were inspecting a car that had been nearly completely burned out. This investigation happened on Wednesday morning, and they were looking at one of the five vehicles that was involved in the crash which happened at around 2 a.m. on the Nassau Expressway.
