Thruway drivers stuck in standstill traffic for 5+ hours after tractor-trailers collide between exits 38 and 39

A tractor-trailer crash created a traffic nightmare on Thursday during-and-after the evening commute.

State police confirmed that two tractor-trailers were involved in a wreck between exits 38 and 39 along the New York State Thruway.


It initially shut down both sides of the Thruway. Making matters worse, the drivers caught between the wreck and the exit behind them were left stuck in traffic for 5+ hours.

The scene was eventually cleared between 11 p.m. and midnight.

The drivers involved in the crash sustained non-life threatening injuries.
