WOODBURY - Several lanes of the Long Island Expressway were reopened Tuesday afternoon after a crash temporarily shut down westbound traffic.

The westbound lanes were closed at around noon after a crash at Exit 53.

Authorities say the woman got out of her vehicle and began walking before collapsing. She was transported to Southside Hospital with injuries that are not life-threatening.

The driver of the pickup truck was not injured.
