If you take the Major Deegan Expressway through the Bronx to get to work, you hopefully avoided a major accident that made for a nightmare commute Wednesday morning.

A jackknifed tractor-trailer blocked the southbound lanes just south of Yankee Stadium, wreaking havoc on the commute.

The accident happened just after 6:30 a.m.

Emergency vehicles also responded on the northbound side, backing up traffic there as well, to go along with rubbernecking delays.

Southbound traffic was squeezing by on the shoulder by 7:30 a.m., but the backup stretched for miles.

The scene was cleared by 8:30 a.m., but residual delays continued, particularly at the George Washington Bridge.
