FREEPORT - Part of Sunrise Highway has reopened in Freeport after being shut down for hours after a crash.

Chopper 12 was over the scene as state DOT crews spread sand all over the roadway.

Village police say a truck and another vehicle collided at the corner of Ocean Avenue around 8:15 a.m.

They say no one was hurt, but the crash caused hydraulic fluid to spill across the westbound lanes.

The road was closed for hours while the mess was cleaned up.
