NEW YORK (WCBS 880) -- An overturned tractor-trailer has brought traffic to a halt on the Long Island Expressway. 

The tractor-trailer carrying debris was heading westbound when it hit the divider and flipped over into the eastbound lanes near 164th Street around 12:30 p.m. Tuesday.

All lanes were closed in both directions at one point during cleanup efforts.


Westbound delays were building rapidly, stretching all the way back to the Cross Island Parkway. 

Volume was starting to build up around Woodhaven Boulevard on the eastbound side.

Four people suffered minor injuries in the crash.
