The Thursday commute was a big pain after both levels of the George Washington Bridge were impacted by a tanker accident and a separate three car accident.

On the Upper Level, a tractor trailer passed over an exposed finger joint in the left lane. That punctured the truck's fuel tank, leaking fuel onto the upper level.

The truck was removed and the leak was cleaned up. Once all lanes reopened, traffic was moving pretty freely.

Separately, there was a three car crash that closed the inbound lower level. There were minor injuries in the crash.

That accident was cleared and all lanes were opened just after 7 p.m.
