BUFFALO, NY (WKBW-TV) - Route 5 eastbound, heading into downtown Buffalo, is closed from Ohio Street to the I-190. A tractor trailer lost several metal rods that scattered the elevated highway.

The incident happened around 3pm. We're told the roadway will be closed through the rush hour while they clean up the metal rods.
