Northbound lanes on the Northway were closed for hours near Exit 15 after a tractor-trailer overturned Tuesday.

Just before 6 p.m. Tuesday, a truck hit the shoulder on the bridge, went off the road onto the east shoulder, and burst into flames. Before the accident, police said they received reports the truck kept driving on the shoulder and kicking up dirt.

No one was hurt and police are unsure if the driver had a medical emergency or fell asleep.

According to NY 511 all lanes have been reopened and traffic appears to be moving normally. Police say some rail damage occurred during the accident and will need to be repaired.

The investigation into the crash is ongoing.
