A Lincoln Tunnel accident left one man dead and a handful of others injured Tuesday after a chain-reaction crash snarled traffic inside one of the tubes.

Port Authority of New York and New Jersey police spokesman Joe Pentangelo told The Associated Press that the 49-year-old Summit, New Jersey, resident was among three people hurt in the accident. But his name has not been released, pending notification of his relatives.

The drivers of both passenger vehicles were also injured. No injuries were reported to bus passengers, though one had a panic attack after the crash.
