WEEHAWKEN, N.J. — A large fuel spill after a crash on the New Jersey side of the Lincoln Tunnel is causing heavy delays heading into New York Thursday morning.

AIR11 was over the scene after a dump truck was apparently involved in a collision that caused the fuel spill near the inbound entrance of the Lincoln Tunnel.

The crash is on the 495 viaduct, near the Pleasant Avenue exit and crews are still o the scene cleaning up, with just the left land open currently, after both lanes were temporarily closed earlier.

The crash and resulting lane closure are making for some heavy backups, a potential 45-minute delay according to AIR11.

This is a developing story. Check back for updates.
