State police say one person has been killed in a two-vehicle accident that shut down both westbound lanes of the New York Thruway in the Mohawk Valley.
The crash involved a tractor-trailer and car that collided around 7:45 p.m. Wednesday on the westbound side of Interstate 90 near Canajoharie in Montgomery County, 45 miles northwest of Albany.
Two people were injured, and troopers say one of them has died. Police say more information will be released later Thursday morning.
Both westbound lanes between Exit 29 at Canajoharie and Exit 29A at Little Falls were closed for periods late Wednesday night and early Thursday morning, and westbound traffic was diverted off the highway at Exit 29. Both lanes were reopened by 4 a.m.
