LINCOLN TUNNEL, New Jersey (WABC) -- A fatal motorcycle crash in the Lincoln Tunnel caused problems for drivers heading out of Manhattan during the morning commute.

Port Authority police say a 23-year-old woman passenger from Brooklyn died and the 35-year-old Hyde Park, New York man who was driving the bike was injured in the crash around 3 a.m. Wednesday in the New Jersey-bound north tube.

The north tube reopened around 6:30 a.m. following the investigation.

However, motorists faced delays because only the south tube was open for traffic headed into New York City and the center tube was open for motorists headed to New Jersey during the investigation.

New Jersey Transit trains and NY Waterway ferries cross-honored all bus tickets because bus passengers faced delays when the north tube was closed.
