FORT LEE, N.J. (CBS 2/WCBS 880/ AP) – The upper level of the George Washington Bridge into New York City reopened to traffic nearly four hours after a multi-vehicle wreck Monday morning.
Motorists experienced major delays throughout the morning rush.
Traffic had been at a standstill after the accident. Port Authority spokesman Ron Marsico said the inbound lanes were closed following a crash involving seven tractor-trailers and a car under the apartments at 3:15 a.m. Monday.
Marsico said there was one minor injury.
Workers had to clean up fuel and antifreeze from the bridge deck before reopening the upper level around 7:07 a.m.
The cause of the crash is under investigation.
