ROTTERDAM, N.Y. (AP) - A crash involving a tractor-trailer forced police to block off lanes of the Thruway west of Albany during the morning rush hour.

State troopers say the accident occurred Tuesday at about 6 a.m. on the eastbound lanes between Exit 26 in Rotterdam and Exit 25A in Duanesburg.

Troopers briefly closed all lanes while a medical helicopter landed at the scene, blocking traffic in each direction. Lanes were opened by 8 a.m.

Police tell local media that injuries related to the crash are not considered life threatening.
