LAKE GEORGE, N.Y. (NEWS10) — The northbound side of the Northway in Lake George reopened after a crash on Monday. The road was shut down between Exits 22 and 23 for about three hours after a crash involving a car carrier and a tractor trailer that caused multiple secondary crashes.
New York State Police said no one was injured. One driver who was stuck in the traffic told NEWS10 he was surprised and grateful that everyone involved was okay.
“We were coming around the curb, and we just saw traffic was coming right to a screeching halt. And you could see the smoke coming from one of the tractor trailers, and we immediately pulled over and got out and ran to make sure everyone was okay.”
The road reopened just after 2 p.m. The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
