Port Authority spokesman Ron Marsico said the driver was taken to a hospital with unknown injuries. The cause of the accident was under investigation.

The accident snarled New Jersey-bound traffic for about five hours Friday morning, throwing a huge snag in the plans of people trying to quit the city early Friday.
