WEEHAWKEN, N.J. – Commuters who use the Lincoln Tunnel are facing delays in and out of New York City because of a fatal motorcycle accident.

Port Authority police say a 23-year-old woman passenger died and the 35-year-old man who was driving the bike was injured in the crash around 3 a.m. Wednesday in the New Jersey-bound north tube.

The north tubed reopened around 6:30 a.m. following the investigation.

However, motorists are facing delays because only the south tube was open for traffic headed into New York City and the center tube was open for motorists headed to New Jersey during the investigation.

New Jersey Transit is cross honoring all bus tickets because bus passengers can expect delays with the north tube closed.
