Traffic heading from northern New Jersey into New York City remains a mess hours after a fatal crash on the upper level of the George Washington Bridge.

Port Authority of New York and New Jersey spokesman Rudy King says two tractor-trailers crashed and became wedged shortly after 2 a.m. Thursday. King says one of the truck drivers died and the other was taken to a hospital for evaluation.

Officials reopened one eastbound upper lane several hours later. But the other three lanes remain closed while officials remove the victim’s body and work to separate the trucks.

The bridge’s lower lanes and westbound lanes are open, but drivers are warned to expect major delays around the Fort Lee toll plaza.

The wreck caused a domino effect, with traffic backed up for miles along alternate routes.
