Country star’s equipment truck crashes into Long Island overpass


Hours after country singer Luke Bryan finished singing his hit “Crash My Party” for New York concert goers, one of his tour semi trucks crashed into an overpass on Long Island.

Equipment Truck Becomes Wedges Under Overpass

Around 2:30 a.m. today, one of Bryan’s tour trucks collided with an overpass on the Wantagh State Parkway, causing serious damage to the trailer. Photos taken at the scene show Bryan’s face on the back of the crumpled trailer.

No injuries have yet been reported. It isn’t clear how much, if any, damage was caused to concert equipment.

Trucks are typically not allowed on the Wantagh State Parkway, but this truck may have had a special permit. Commercial vehicles hauling gear for performers headed to the Jones Beach Ampitheater are often issued special permits that allow them to use Wantagh State Parkway.

The crash remains under investigation.

Two lanes of the Parkway were shut down for two hours for cleanup and removal of the truck.

Bryan performed at the Jones Beach Ampitheater in support of his “Huntin’ Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day” tour. His show was well-reviewed in spite of the face that he was fighting against allergy issues.
