BREWSTER, N.Y. -- New York State Police closed Interstate 84 in both directions Wednesday night between the Connecticut border and Route 9 in Fishkill because of numerous accidents due to icing conditions.

"There are tractor-trailers jack-knifed (and) accidents all over the place," said Sgt. David Claytor at the Brewster barracks.

Police said the closure is expected to be temporary, but as of 8:30 p.m., they said they did not know when the highway would reopen.
