TULLY, N.Y. (AP) -- The northbound lanes of Interstate 81 south of Syracuse have reopened after being shut down for about seven hours by a serious crash.

The Post-Standard reports that a car and tractor-trailer collided around 10:40 Wednesday near Exit 14 in the Onondaga County town of Tully, 15 miles (24 kilometers) south of Syracuse.

The sheriff's office says the woman driving the car suffered serious injuries and is listed in critical condition at Upstate University Hospital in Syracuse. The truck driver wasn't injured.

The state Department of Transportation says I-81's northbound lanes reopened around 5:30 a.m. Thursday.

Police say the woman's car spun sideways and then was struck by the tractor-trailer.

Deputies are investigating the cause of the accident.
