A minor accident involving a Suffolk County bus just east of the Lobster Inn Grille on County Road 39 is backing up traffic for miles in the eastbound lanes of Sunrise Highway.

There were no injuries reported as a result of the accident, in which a sedan rear-ended a S92 bus in the right lane of County Road 39 sometime around 8 a.m., according to authorities. The accident has backed up traffic as far as Exit 65 on Sunrise Highway in Hampton Bays, and is causing delays along Montauk Highway.

The lane was recently reopened but commuters are still dealing with residual delays.

New York State Troopers, who are handling the investigation, did not have any other information as of 8:45 a.m. Wednesday.
