FISHKILL, N.Y. -- A serious motor-vehicle crash involving a telephone pole resulted in the hours-long closure of a stretch of Route 9 in both directions in Fishkill late Monday afternoon through late in the evening.

The closure, reported just before 5 p.m., occurred at the intersection of Old Route 9 when a truck hit the telephone pole and a school bus ran into downed wires.

No one injuries were reported.

Traffic was backed up in both directions, leading to delays of well over an hour.
