Tanker truck involved in crash on eastbound I-290 near Amherst

ERIE COUNTY, NY – A tanker truck accident Monday morning, June 17, caused long delays for commuters on Interstate 290 near Amherst, according to WGRZ TrafficTracker2.

The crash, which impacted the eastbound lanes at Exit 5A to Millersport Highway (Highway 263), was first reported shortly before 8:07 a.m.

Local officials did not immediately indicate a cause of the crash, but the tanker truck and an SUV appeared to have been involved, leaving the left and right shoulders of the highway blocked.

At the time of the initial report, traffic had slowed significantly back to the I-990 interchange (Exit 4), and southbound traffic on I-990 was experiencing delays at the ramp to eastbound I-290.

No information about the conditions of the drivers or other occupants has been made available, and no charges have been reported.
