Posted: Updated:

New York-bound traffic is moving once again at the Lincoln Tunnel.



Port Authority of New York and New Jersey spokesman Joe Pentangelo says lanes have reopened after an accident closed the tube and resulted in delays of up to 90 minutes.



Pentangelo says the accident happened about 6:20 a.m. Tuesday in the tunnel's south tube and involved a Greyhound bus and two cars. Five people had minor injuries.



No charges are pending in the accident.



Traffic was backed up to the New Jersey Turnpike, about two miles away.
