MASTIC, NY - A Long Island Rail Road train slammed into a Jeep in Mastic Friday night. Suffolk County Police said Mastic Road in Mastic was closed in both directions between Mastic Boulevard and Patchogue Avenue after the report of a crash.

According to a LIRR media representative, train service on the LIRR Montauk Branch was temporarily suspended east of Mastic Shirley after a non-passenger train struck an unauthorized vehicle on the tracks east of the station.
