Traffic is moving again on the New Jersey Turnpike after a construction zone accident near Exit 8 caused a 7-mile backup Wednesday.

State Trooper Christopher Kay says a crane was lifting a piece of steel when the beam pivoted into the right lane, hitting a van. Kay says the beam sheared off part of the van’s roof.

Kay says the driver, 63-year-old James Crawford of Newark, sustained lacerations. Two northbound lanes were closed for about two hours.

The accident remains under investigation.
