Four hurt in Skyway crash Saturday

Buffalo, NY(WIVB) – A multiple car accident backed up traffic Saturday afternoon on the westbound portion of Route 5.

Police closed the westbound (outbound) lanes of the Skyway near the Small Boat Harbor, blocking access from Church Street downtown as well as Interstate 190 South.

The collisions involved five cars.  Police say four people were injured, including one with a serious leg injury.  Investigators add, heavy traffic delayed an ambulance heading to the scene, and weather may have led to the collision.

The affected portion of Route 5 reopened late Saturday afternoon. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
