WEST NYACK, N.Y. (AP) - A truck driver escaped serious injury after his tractor-trailer crashed through a center divider on the New York State Thruway, crossed the northbound lanes and went over a steep embankment.

Officials say it happened around 3 a.m. Friday just before the West Nyack exit.

The Journal News (https://lohud.us/1mR7NOf ) says emergency personnel began leaving the scene around 6 a.m.

All lanes were reopened. Officials say they’ll be closed again in a few hours when cranes arrive to remove the wreck.
