No one was seriously injured in the crash, State Police said.

But cleanup of the crash, which the New York State Department of Transportation said occurred at 7:04 a.m., forced the closure between Exit 34, New Highway, and Exit 33, Route 109 -- backing up traffic at the height of the morning rush hour. The lanes were closed for about an hour.
