A black SUV was seen being towed from the scene around 8 a.m., AIR11 video showed. At least one other vehicle and multiple emergency responders remained.

An ambulance also responded. It was not immediately clear if anyone was injured.

The crash caused all New Jersey-bound lanes to close.  Exclusive bus lanes to New York City were also closed.

During the closure, commuters traveling on outbound lanes were stuck at a complete standstill.

Lanes reopened by 8:45 a.m., but heavy traffic remained nearly two hours later.

Inbound traffic headed to NYC experienced a 60 to 90 minute slowdown as of 10:15 a.m.

The exclusive bus lane to NYC typically ends at 10 a.m., but will now stay open until traffic has cleared.
