Earlier this morning, the upper level Manhattan-bound George Washington Bridge roadway was closed due to a multi-vehicle crash and fuel spill. According to MyFoxNY, "Seven tractor trailers and a car collided at around 3:15 a.m. causing a fuel and anti-freeze spill. There were no serious injuries, according to the Port Authority." Seven tractor-trailers!
WABC 7 has more details: "The incident began when a fuel tanker punctured its tank, spilling fuel on the eastbound Trans-Manhattan Expressway, the road that connects the George Washington Bridge to the Cross-Bronx Expressway." Then, the chain reaction of crashes. A sanding truck came in to cover the fuel slick and the upper level is now open, but there are residual delays. The Lincoln and Holland Tunnels were recommended as alternate crossings, but we're betting there are delays there too.
