The Skyway was closed in both directions for almost an hour during this morning’s rush hour, following an approximately five-vehicle chain-reaction accident that apparently resulted in only minor injuries, Buffalo police reported.

The accident, on the inbound Skyway, occurred shortly after 7:40 a.m. The road was reopened, in both directions, at about 8:30 a.m.

Police were not immediately sure whether anyone was taken to a local hospital, but no serious injuries were reported.
