Bronx River Parkway reopens after repairs

The southbound lanes of the Bronx River Parkway have reopened after being closed for most of the day on Tuesday.



Department of Transportation officials closed down the parkway at Scarsdale Road as they made emergency repairs to a 30-foot metal guardrail taken out in Sunday night's 14-car pileup.



They say the pileup was actually several two- and three-car accidents all in one cluster near the spot where the parkway merges onto the Sprain Brook Parkway.



Drivers who came upon the scene say they saw the accidents but couldn't stop because of the icy conditions.



Police say there were at least 10 injuries, but none were serious.
