YONKERS -

Traffic on the Bronx River Parkway was snarled after a tractor-trailer hit an overpass early this morning.

Two lanes of the southbound parkway were closed for a couple hours as crews are worked to remove the debris from the parkway on the Yonkers/Mount Vernon border near exit 11E. The crash was cleared around 6:45 a.m.
