A multi-vehicle accident is being reported near Exit 44 of the New York State Thruway, which resulted in a temporary closure.
The Ontario County Sheriff’s Office reported the official closure of the Thruway following the wreck, which involved two tractor trailers, and possibly two passenger vehicles.
It’s unclear if weather played a role in the wreck. However, conditions throughout Ontario County were snowy and roads were slippery during the afternoon and evening commutes.
This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
