ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The westbound lanes of Interstate 90 in the city of Albany have reopened after being shut down for seven hours by a fatal crash.

Authorities say the accident occurred around 1 a.m. Friday when several vehicles crashed in I-90’s westbound lanes between Exit 6 and Exit 5A.

The westbound lanes reopened around 8:10 a.m.

State police say one person was killed. Troopers are investigating the cause of the crash but haven’t released any details Friday afternoon.

The closure of the westbound lanes caused major backups during the morning commute because I-90 is a main route for motorists heading to jobs in the Albany area.
