Mario M. Cuomo Bridge Closed After 20-Vehicle Crash

The new Gov. Mario M. Cuomo Bridge was closed in both directions Wednesday morning after a multi-vehicle crash that occurred in the morning's snowy conditions.

Multiple injuries were reportedly in the collision, which occurred around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday. 

A tractor-trailer reportedly jackknifed on the slippery road, causing a chain reaction crash.

Around 20 vehicles were reportedly involved in the crash and traffic was snarled for miles in either direction.

Rockland County officials said there were three accidents total, two on the bridge and one on the approach.

State Police would not say when they believed the bridge would be reopened.

Those who needed to cross the Hudson River were advised to used the George Washington Bridge or the Bear Mountain Bridge. 

The $3.9 billion Gov. Mario M. Cuomo Bridge first opened to traffic last summer and is expected to be fully completed by this coming summer.
