Initial reports indicated a person had been thrown from the vehicle and was airlifted to an area hospital.

Both northbound lanes were shut down for about an hour. Eventually, the outside northbound lane was re-opened to traffic, but it was a slow-go for motorists.

State troopers are investigating. There is no word at this hour of the extent of injuries or the names of those involved.
