By NEWSChannel 2 Staff

A motor vehicle accident has caused traffic delays Sunday on the New York State Thruway between Herkimer and Little Falls.

Authorities say the eastbound lanes of the Thruway are blocked at milepost 220.3 between Exit 30 in Herkimer and Exit 29A in Little Falls following what appeared to be a serious motor vehicle accident Sunday afternoon.

Drivers are being told to expect extended delays, but the westbound lanes of the thruway remain open in that area.

State Police would not immediately provide any details about the accident, including the number of people involved, what occurred and the extent of any injuries.
