Buffalo Skyway crash leads to fallen debris

The crash happened around 5 p.m., when a vehicle lost control and struck a concrete wall.

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Nobody was hurt after a crash on the Skyway caused debris to fall to the ground below on Sunday evening.

The crash happened around 5 p.m., when a vehicle lost control and struck a concrete wall, according to a City of Buffalo spokesperson.

Traffic was backed up along westbound Route 5, heading south and out of the city, as crews responded to the scene. That part of the Skyway has since reopened.

In recent years, there's been long-discussed debate on whether to tear down the Skyway, a 100-foot high, mile-long bridge opened in 1955 and spans the mouth of the Buffalo River near Lake Erie.

In the end, some lawmakers said they no longer supported plans for immediate removal of the Skyway unless it meets the community's needs.
