The snowy crash scene from a distance Monday morning.

Police and fire personnel were on the scene of a crash that shut down a lane of Interstate 81 in Syracuse Monday morning.

One lane of Interstate 81 south near the Harrison Street exit (exit 18) was closed due to a crash involving a garbage truck and a snowplow. Our photographer on the scene says the crash involved a Syracuse Haulers truck and a State DOT plow.

The crash happened around 11:10 a.m. The State DOT slosed one lane of I-81 south while crews worked to clear the scene. The lane reopened around 12;30 p.m.
