SIDNEY, N.Y. (WBNG) -- Authorities have released more details into a snowplow and garbage truck crash that closed multiple lanes on I-88 in the village of Sidney, N.Y. on Tuesday.

The New York State Police Department says around 11:30 a.m. the plow was in the left lane plowing the passing lane and shoulder of the roadway. The truck was in the right lane.

The truck struck the snowplow wing on its right side, causing the plow and the truck to go into the median near Exit 9, police say.
