Traffic snarls northbound 190, Scajaquada after dump truck and motorcycle crash

Interstate 190 northbound was closed to traffic at the Scajaquada Expressway exit after a dump truck crashed with a motorcycle and caught fire on Thursday afternoon.

The fire has been put out, but photographs of the accident scene – to which several ambulances were called – show a good deal of charring to the dump truck.

The ramp from the Scajaquada to the northbound I-190 was also closed.
