EAST MEADOW, N.Y. (AP) - Police and witnesses say two people were killed in a head-on collision between a car and a landscaping truck on Long Island.

It happened on North Jerusalem Road at Roxboro Court in East Meadow just before 2 p.m. Monday.

Newsday (https://nwsdy.li/1rvtdDs ) says the driver of the truck told his boss that the other vehicle crossed the yellow line and crashed head-on into the truck. The driver and two passengers in the truck suffered minor injuries.

Two people in the car were killed. Their identities have not yet been released.

On Saturday, a mother, her three children and their grandmother were killed when their car struck a tree in Babylon as they headed home in the evening from a family gathering.
