A fiery chain-reaction crash involving at least five cars on Long Island near John F. Kennedy Airport killed two people and injured seven others, and two of the people who were hurt have been arrested, authorities said early Wednesday.

Five people were taken to hospitals in unknown condition after the multi-car wreck on the Nassau Expressway near Burnside Avenue in Inwood around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday; the other two who were hurt were treated at the scene.

The identities of the two people killed have not been released. Cops responding to the scene found at least one car completely engulfed in flames, and those victims' bodies remained trapped in the charred wreckage for hours. 

Police are still investigating the cause of the crash. Two people have been arrested, officials said; the exact charges weren't immediately clear. It was also extremely foggy in the area at the time of the crash. 

 

Video from the scene shows a massive police presence while investigators search the area as one car sits in the road completely obliterated. 

Police say two people have now been arrested in connection with this deadly crash and Detectives are investigating possible use of alcohol before the crash.

Nassau Expressway between Burnside Avenue and Bay Boulevard remains shut down. Travelers were urged to avoid the area during the morning commute.
