Whiteout Conditions Cause Multi Vehicle Accident, Closes New York State Thruway [PHOTOS]
Whiteout conditions caused a multi vehicle accident on the New York State Thruway. The crash, involving several tractor trailers between exit 39 and exit 40 near Weedsport, blocked all lanes on I-90 and backed up traffic for miles.
James Blanchard was among those stuck in traffic. He took a few pictures before getting back in his vehicle to stay warm. Unbelievably, the person in the truck that was wedged under the tractor trailer wasn't seriously injured.
Matthew Lajuett and Gregory Reid were in the Mid-State Communications truck that was somehow put back together after the crash. Former employee Christopher Balick shared the photos taken by Lajett and Reid at the accident and says neither man was injured.
