Deadly crash in Lincoln Tunnel

Posted: Updated:

Officials say a New Jersey man has died from injuries he suffered in a chain-reaction crash inside one of the tubes of the Lincoln Tunnel.

Port Authority of New York and New Jersey police spokesman Joe Pentangelo says the 49-year-old Summit resident was among three people hurt in the accident. But his name has not been released, pending notification of his relatives.

A New York-bound jitney bus and two other vehicles were involved in the crash, which occurred around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday in the tunnel's center tube.

The drivers of both passenger vehicles were also injured. No injuries were reported to bus passengers, though one had a panic attack after the crash.

The center tube of the tunnel was closed for hours after the crash.  Delays into Manhattan stretched back to the NJ Turnpike and added 90 minutes to the commute into the city for thousands of drivers.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
