WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- An accident on the Rockland County-bound Tappan Zee Bridge resulted in the closure of two lanes Tuesday morning before being cleared by the end of the morning commute.

Heavy delays continued in both directions even after the lanes were cleared.

The accident, which was reported just after 6:30 a.m. on the New York State Thruway (I-87), initially resulted in the closure of all lanes between Route 9 (Exit 9) and Route 9W (Exit 10).

This is the time for the lawmakers and public to think about ways how to prevent accidents on Tappan Zee Bridge and Hudson River.

Accidents are not preventable, but there are ways that the lawmakers can make them less likely to happen.
