BRANT, N.Y. (AP) -- The westbound lanes of the Thruway south of Buffalo are open again after being shut down for about three hours by a tractor-trailer crash.
State police say the truck was heading west on Interstate 90 when it veered into the guide rail along a stretch of the highway in the southern Erie County town of Brant around 12:15 a.m. Wednesday.
Troopers say the truck tore out about 200 feet of guide rail, pushing debris onto the highway and forcing its closure between Exit 57A and Exit 58 until almost 3:30 a.m.
Westbound traffic was diverted off the Thruway at Exit 57A while crews cleaned up the crash scene.
The trucker wasn't injured. Troopers say the cause of the crash is being investigated.
