NEW YORK — People were injured and all lanes were blocked on the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge after a multivehicle crash Wednesday morning, according to officials.

A crash on the northbound side at milepost 15.8 on the bridge initially left all lanes blocked, officials reported at 9:45 a.m.

The Mario Cuomo Bridge replaced the former Tappan Zee Bridge, which is being disassembled and is no longer in service.

Two lanes were reopened on each side of the roadway by 12:20 p.m.

Video shared on Twitter showed at least six vehicles, one that was badly mangled, appeared to be involved in the crash.

Officials have confirmed people were injured, but no details were provided.

A storm rolling through the area Wednesday morning left sheets of ice on the roadway, causing dangerously slick conditions, according to tweets.
