NORTH HILLS, N.Y. — A box truck hit an overpass on the Long Island Expressway and overturned on Monday, killing the driver and a passenger, police said.

The truck was headed east on the LIE in North Hills at about 5 a.m. when it left the roadway and struck the overpass for Shelter Rock Road, Nassau County police said.

The truck's driver and sole passenger were pronounced dead at the scene, police said. Their names were not immediately released. No other vehicles were involved in the crash.
