The incident was reported Friday morning around 5:30 a.m. and caused a major backup when all three Westchester County-bound lanes were shut down.

It appears the tractor-trailer collided with a construction vehicle on the bridge, which caused the tractor-trailer to overturn.
No serious injuries were reported.
Commuters leaving Rockland County were advised to seek alternate routes like the Bear Mountain Bridge or the George Washington Bridge.
