Tractor trailer crashes into small body of water on NYS Thruway


ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Tractor trailer crashes into a small body of water just off the shoulder of the NYS Thruway.

Accident took place where the I-87 and I-90 portions of the Thruway converge near Exit 23 and Exit 24 in Albany County.

The right lane was closed as of 7:05 a.m.

New York State Police said the driver was not paying attention and started to veer off the roadway and tried to over-correct causing him to lose control of the double tandem tractor trailer.

Police said the driver suffered minor injuries and was taken to the hospital. No tickets will be issued.

As of 11:00 a.m. one lane is still closed on the portion of I-90/Thruway near Stuyvesant Plaza/Crossgates Mall and crews are trying to remove the tractor trailer.

NEWS10 ABC will provide further details as they come.
