A cash reward of up to $5,000 is being offered by Suffolk County Crime Stoppers for any information leading to the arrest of a truck driver who injured three people in Melville on Friday after striking a vehicle and fleeing the scene.

Suffolk County police said that, at 2:20 a.m., a construction tractor trailer was traveling westbound on Expressway Drive North when it struck a 2002 Saturn traveling northbound on Walt Whitman Road.

The three people in the Saturn suffered non-life-threatening injuries, police said. The driver of the truck – which had a sign reading “Construction Vehicle Do Not Follow” on its rear – fled the scene of the accident.

As of press time Monday, police confirmed that no arrests had been made in connection to the incident.

Anyone for information about this crime is asked to call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-220-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
