A stretch of the southbound Taconic State Parkway was closed for nearly two hours Wednesday after a serious accident.

The accident, which occurred just after 2 p.m., was between Bryant Pond Road and the Westchester border and reportedly involved several off-duty police motorcyclists.

At least one of the motorcyclists was airlifted to Westchester Medical Center with life-threatening injuries, state police said.

Commuters were asked to detour from the Taconic State Parkway to Peekskill Hollow Road to Bryant Pond Road to Barger Street onto Route 6 and return to the southbound lanes of the Taconic State Parkway, state police said.
