The Friday the 13th morning rollover truck accident on the Tappan Zee Bridge delayed thousands of motorists during the five hours the northbound lanes of the bridge were closed from just before 9 a.m. to around 2 p.m.

It also forced a Piermont woman to give birth and delayed a former president's from arriving at a campaign rally.

Husband Brian Larkin waited on the bridge as his wife Ashley was escorted by state troopers to Westchester, where she delivered a baby girl, named Maudi, in the ambulance of the parking lot at Phelps Memorial Hospital in Sleepy Hollow, according to News 12.

The crash also delayed Bill Clinton's campaign stop on behalf of his wife, Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton, at Passaic County College in Paterson.

The former president left the Clintons' Chappaqua home with seemingly plenty of time to spare to get to the rally, which was attended by a crowd of more than 550. But the accident resulted in his arriving an hour late.

Clinton told the crowd the accident on the bridge was a "metaphor for the election," adding, "It's bridge-building, not wall building," America needs.
