A major accident yesterday (August 8) afternoon between two tractor trailers sent one man to the hospital for minor injuries and closed both lanes on Interstate-81 northbound near Nedrow, backing up traffic for miles.
Members of the Onondaga County Sheriff’s Department say just before 3:30 p.m, a tractor trailer sideswiped another that was stopped in traffic waiting for a different accident ahead.
The momentum pushed the stationary trailer forward into a cargo box truck.
One of the trailer drivers was trapped for nearly an hour until crews could extricate him and take him to Upstate Medical Center, where he was treated for minor injuries.
No one else was hurt and no tickets are issued at this time.
