Traffic at the George Washington Bridge was brought to a standstill this morning after a deadly accident involving two trucks.
This happened around 2:30 a.m., blocking the Upper Level lanes heading into New York. The lanes were closed for several hours, causing a line of cars that stretched for miles into New Jersey.
One lane was finally opened around 6 a.m., easing some of the congestion. But lengthy delays continued.
Drivers have been urged to take an alternate route into New York City.
The cause of the accident is under investigation.
