Crash backs up traffic on Northway

LAKE GEORGE -- A collision between a sedan and a motor home prompted police to block off a section of I-87 Northway northbound for about two hours Friday evening May 27, resulting in traffic backing up three miles or more.

Vehicles were re-routed onto state Rte. 9 at Northway Exit 22 to Northway Exit 23 near Warrensburg. At about 9:15 p.m., traffic was resumed on one single northbound lane of the Northway. State police said injuries were minor, but the crash spread debris all over the roadway, and it needed to be cleaned up.

Full traffic flow resumed on the Northway early Saturday morning.
