BUFFALO, NY ( WKBW/ NITTEC) The I-190 Northbound is now open beyond Exit 9 (Peace Bridge) after a tractor trailer accident.

A tractor trailer tipped over onto two cars at approximately 1:30pm Monday afternoon.

Reports into the Eyewitness Newsroom indicate at least one person was injured, and had to be removed from one of the vehicles.

Traffic was backed up in the northbound direction as police worked to detour around the incident. The Thruway authority closed the I-190 at Exit 9 for several hours, closing off several on ramps.

Everything re-opened just before 4:30p.m. Monday afternoon.

I-190 Southbound was also congested and slow.
