Westchester-bound traffic in Rockland was snarled this morning and brought cars to a near stand-still on the Tappan Zee Bridge due to an accident east of the Hudson.
A truck crash on I-287 in White Plain at around 7 a.m. caused the congestion, and though the scene was cleared before 9:30 a.m., Rockland traffic remained clogged for over an hour afterward.
Drivers heading south on the Thruway toward Westchester sat in traffic backed-up all the way to exit 14 in Airmont. At around 9:30 a.m., it was taking 20 minutes—at least—to cross the span.
All lanes have been reopened as of 11 a.m., said Glenn Williams, a state trooper out of the Tarrytown barracks.
"There were no injures," he added.
Williams said the accident occurred when a car in front of the truck lost control.
