A portion of Sound Avenue in Wading River was closed to traffic about 1:30 p.m. Thursday after a pickup truck hit a pole and flipped just west of Hulse Landing Road.

A Suffolk County Police Department medevac helicopter was called to the scene, though it was determined the Ford pickup’s four occupants suffered only minor injuries and were taken by ambulance to Stony Brook Medical Center.

The crash happened in front of Lewin Farms, where firefighters used a Jaws of Life tool to extract the four victims.

Police at the scene said speed might have been a factor in the crash.
