Saw Mill River Parkway reopened in both directions after serious accident

YONKERS, N.Y. — A bad crash that left two mangled SUVs on the Saw Mill River Parkway during the Thursday morning rush snarled traffic for almost eight hours.

Two lanes on the southbound side were reopened by 7:05 a.m., but northbound lanes remained fully closed until around 11 a.m.

Lo-Hud reports the two drivers sustained serious injuries, including a broken leg and neck problems.

The crash happened shortly after 3 a.m. on the northbound lanes, which were closed between the Cross County Parkway and the Bronx.
