NEWBURGH, N.Y. — Traffic is moving again on a Hudson Valley bridge after a pair of late-night crashes, including one involving a car and a tractor-trailer that caused delays for several hours.

The New York State Bridge Authority says the accident occurred late Monday night in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 84 on the Newburgh-Beacon Bridge, which connects Orange and Dutchess counties 60 miles north of New York City.

Officials say the crash caused major traffic backups as state police directed eastbound traffic off I-84 at Exit 8 in Orange County.

The Bridge Authority says a second crash in the westbound lanes on the Newburgh side of the bridge caused more problems.

Troopers say the crash scenes were cleared by 4 a.m. Tuesday. More information on the crashes hasn't been released.
