CATSKILL, N.Y. -- The Thruway, just south of Albany, is back open Monday morning after a fatal tractor-trailer crash shut down traffic for several hours Sunday, in the town of Catskill.

Two tractor-trailers were involved in the crash and it caused all northbound lanes to be blocked off for quite a while.

One driver was confirmed dead at the scene.

At this point, the investigation is ongoing.
