George Washington Bridge Open After Morning Accident

June 12 (Bloomberg) -- The George Washington Bridge’s upper level was reopened after an early morning accident that snarled commuters headed across the Hudson River into Manhattan.

The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey, which operates the world’s busiest span, said traffic resumed at 11:47 a.m. following delays that lasted more than 90 minutes.

Two tractor-trailers crashed shortly after 2 a.m., Port Authority spokeswoman Erica Dumas said. One of the truck drivers died and the other was taken to a hospital for evaluation, she said.

Buses have resumed normal operations serving the Port Authority and George Washington Bridge bus terminals in Manhattan, New Jersey Transit said in a posting on Twitter at 2:45 p.m.
