Fire truck smashes through store on Long Island

A fire truck responding to a call about a burning smell in a building on Long Island got involved in a crash with other vehicles on the way to the site and ended up slamming into a furniture store.

Chopper 4 was over the scene shortly before noon and captured the dramatic response in Oceanside.

Only half the fire truck was visible, the other half jammed inside the building. A black SUV was wedged between the truck and the brick. A number of other vehicles appear to have been involved.

The accident happened near Rutland Avenue and South Long Beach Road. It appears to have brought down an entire wall of the furniture store.

A half-dozen people were said to have been evaluated at the scene. Two civilians who had been inside the building were taken to a hospital with minor injuries, along with three first responders.
