NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Traffic headed to Staten Island was brought to a sudden halt Monday night after a tractor trailer overturned on the Verrazzano Bridge.
All island-bound upper lanes of the bridge are currently closed due to the wreck. Authorities later closed all upper level lanes on the bridge due to the high winds.
Drivers captured video of the truck after it flipped over at around 7 p.m.
One person was injured. Authorities are still investigating but believe the high winds may have contributed to the crash.
