I just passed the accident site where the thruway is very close to Prole Rd Ext. (where the tow truck entrance is). There is a red car on a trailer bed, the front end is badly damaged. There is what looks like a large construction vehicle on its side. I saw at least 2 fire engines on site.
Thank you Margaret for the firsthand info.
