KENT, N.Y. (AP) - State police say a westbound stretch of Interstate 84 in New York City’s northern suburbs has reopened after being closed for about two hours when a tractor-trailer crashed and overturned.

Troopers say I-81’s westbound lanes were closed after the crash in the area of Ludingtonville Road at Exit 17 in the Putnam County town of Kent, near the Connecticut border. All westbound traffic was detoured off the interstate to Ludingtonville Road until the lanes were reopened around 7:30 a.m. Monday.

Authorities say the crash occurred near the southern Dutchess County line around 5:30 a.m.

No other details have been released.
