Route 13 crash makes for messy commute

Route 13 crash makes for messy commute

The evening commute was a mess Friday for drivers on Route 13 north of Ithaca.

A multi-car crash happened around 4:30 p.m. between the Cayuga Heights Road and Triphammer Road exits.

Sheriff’s department and Lansing Fire officials were on the scene within minutes of the crash, which stopped traffic in both directions on Route 13 for over 30 minutes.

Traffic finally got moving once tow trucks were able to get the cars out of the way.

Calls Friday night and Saturday morning by WHCU to law enforcement officials turned up very little about the crash.

We know a medical helicopter was called after initial reports of injuries, but there’s been no confirmation of injuries or how bad they were.
