NJ-bound Lincoln Tunnel closed due to crash with possible injuries; traffic in, out of NY impacted

NEW JERSEY — Traffic near the Lincoln Tunnel was at a complete standstill Wednesday morning after a three-vehicle crash blocked the New Jersey-bound side, prompting a closure.

A crash before 9 a.m. blocked the New Jersey-bound side's North Tube, according to Port Authority officials.

One person was injured in the three-vehicle collision, officials said. Additional information on the person's condition was not made available

The New Jersey-bound side was temporarily closed, snarling traffic in both directions.

New York-bound exclusive bus lanes experienced heavy delays to and from the Port Authority, and delays for general traffic was up to one hour.

NJ Transit tweeted that buses departing from the Port Authority Bus Terminal were experiencing delays up to 30 minutes.

One passenger heading into New York said her bus was at a complete standstill, before the driver eventually turned the engine off.

An announcer told passengers there was a "temporary stoppage due to police activity at the Lincoln Tunnel."

New Jersey Rail cross-honored bus tickets at Secaucus Junction, Newark Penn, Hoboken and Penn stations.
