At least 19 cars collided in an early morning wreck on an icy stretch of I-95, sending two people to the hospital and causing a massive traffic jam.
The accident happened just before 7 a.m. on the southbound side of the highway near Rye, New York State Police said. A construction project caused some road flooding, which made the highway icy.
The severity of the injuries was not immediately clear.
A nine-mile long traffic jam has the highway backed up all the way to Stamford. All traffic is being diverted to Exit 21.
Aerials from Chopper 4 showed a long line of cars loaded up on the backs of flatbed tow trucks.
