ROTTERDAM, N.Y. (AP) — Traffic is moving again on the New York State Thruway's westbound lanes after they were shut down by a jackknifed tractor-trailer outside Albany.
The Thruway Authority says the truck crashed around 7:20 a.m. Friday and blocked the westbound lanes between Exit 25A and Exit 26 in the town of Rotterdam, 10 miles northwest of Albany.
Westbound traffic on Interstate 90 was diverted off the highway at Exit 25 near Schenectady.
The Thruway Authority reported the westbound lanes reopened around 8:25 a.m.
It was snowing at the time of the crash but there's no immediate information on what caused the accident. The latest storm has dumped more than two feet of snow on the Albany area.
