QUEENS — An overturned vehicle has blocked multiple lanes on the Van Wyck Expressway, causing massive delays during the Friday morning rush-hour commute.
The vehicle flipped onto its side on the southbound side near Northern Boulevard, AIR11 footage showed as of 6:25 a.m.
An tow truck and ambulance were on scene, and the vehicle was flipped upright within minutes.
When the vehicle was on its side, two lanes were closed, but as it was flipped upright and towed away the southbound side was fully closed.
The incident caused massive delays on both sides of the Van Wyck.
Southbound, vehicles were backed up to the Whitestone Expressway, and westbound vehicles faced traffic through the Cross Island Parkway.
