NEW YORK -- Drivers taking the George Washington Bridge Wednesday morning were experienced  a nightmare commute as a crash with a fuel spill delayed traffic into Manhattan nearly two hours.

It was all due to a crash on the upper level that sent fuel spilling into nearly all inbound lanes on the upper half of the span, aerial footage of the scene showed.

The lower inbound lanes were experiencing delays of at least 15 minutes, according to the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey.

Drivers were advised to take the lower level or Lincoln Tunnel to get around the jam, PIX11 News traffic anchor Kaitlin Monte said.
