NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — One person was killed and four more were hurt in crash involving seven vehicles, including a motorcycle, that snarled traffic on the George Washington Bridge late Sunday.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey responded to the collision on the inbound upper-level of the bridge around 8 p.m.

The FDNY says two people were rushed to a nearby hospital. Their condition wasn’t immediately known.

Drivers experienced delays of up to 60 minutes and were urged to find an alternative route into New York City as crews investigated the crash.

It wasn’t immediately clear when all lanes on the bridge would reopen.

  1. Bob Phillips says:

    We were there. It was more like 2 hours, and we were only 1 mile from the toll booth when the traffic stopped.
