A morning collision inside of the Lincoln Tunnel quickly became a commuter's nightmare.
Around 7:20 a.m., a car collided with two tractor trailers inside of the tunnel's outbound north tube. The tunnel was being opened and closed "sporadically," delaying the morning commute by over two hours in some cases:
Was sitting on bus outside Lincoln Tunnel for almost 2 hours and now finally moving. Horrible. Pass the Jameson.— Andrew Smith (@DrewsView) March 19, 2014
Stuck in traffic for 2 1/2 hours, I think my bus driver has officially gone rogue. #Lincolntunnel— Ryan Hunt (@rynhnt) March 19, 2014
Joe Pentangelo, a spokesman for Port Authority, said the tunnel's north tube is now open. NJ Transit is no longer directing buses to Newark's Penn Station and Secaucus Junction, but additional delays should be anticipated. The accident left one person injured, but Gothamist reports that the person refused medical attention.
