ROZ VARON: Started before we went on the air at 4:30. It's a terrible injury crash northbound on the Tri-State, just before the 83rd Street cashbox, and Chopper 7HD is over it.

One semi rear ended another. And the second semi, there is so much damage done to the cab there. State police told me there was entrapment, don't even know if they were able to get that person out.

Now, you do see that left lane northbound on the Tri-State being let through. But, that's all the traffic that's been trapped in that area because they had all lanes closed. They are still diverting traffic off at 95th Street. Nobody is getting any farther North than 95th Street, and it is causing a significant delay with the ongoing investigation.
