Police say four passenger cars, two trucks and a New York State Thruway plow truck were all involved in the accident on the northbound side of I-87 just north of Woodbury tolls at around 10:45 a.m.

The six injured were taken by ambulance to local hospitals with injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening.
