Huge Turnpike backup: Overturned box truck spills its load
CRANBURY — An overturned box truck spilled its load onto the New Jersey Turnpike, causing multi mile delays that continued at the end of Tuesday's commute.
New Jersey State Police spokesman Sgt. Jeff Flynn said that the box truck overturned in the southbound truck lanes between exit No. 8A (Jamesburg) and No. 8 (Route 33) in Cranbury after hitting a guardrail just before 9 a.m.
All lanes in both the inner and outer lanes were reopened around 11 a.m.
Both the driver and passenger were hospitalized, according to Flynn, who said no other vehicles were involved in the crash.
New Jersey Fast Traffic's Christina Stoffo, who drove past the overturn, said the load contained a lot of glass bottles.
Lanes in both the inner and outer lanes were still closed for clean up and investigation around 9:45 a.m.
