Cross Bronx Cause

Drivers trying to get into the city faced delays of 90 minutes on the George Washington Bridge Friday because of a tractor-trailer accident and fuel spill on the eastbound Cross Bronx Expressway.

Two lanes of the Cross Bronx Expressway were shut down after the early-morning accident at the Sheridan Expressway. They reopened by about 9:00 a.m., but lingering delays were extensive; traffic stretched all the way to New Jersey.

It was not immediately clear if anyone was hurt.

Separately, a disabled jitney bus blocked the right lane in the center tube of the Lincoln Tunnel, causing delays of at least 45 minutes at the height of the commute.
