TRAFFIC ALERT: I-295 Backed Up As Tractor Trailer Hangs Off Highway in Mount Laurel
Traffic is snarled this morning on I-295 in Mount Laurel (Burlington County). A truck collided with a car on I-295 in Mount Laurel before 4 a.m., New Jersey State Police tell NBC10.
The tractor-trailer went over the side of the highway, and NBC10 reports that the cab landed on Church Street. Only one lane on I-295 is open at this point, and traffic is moving very slowly in the area.
The driver only suffered minor injuries to his arm, 6ABC reports. Plus, 6ABC reports that hazmat crews have been called to the scene because the truck's fuel tanks were leaking. So it could be a while before the road re-opens and traffic clears. The New Jersey Turnpike is available as an alternate route, but expect delays in the area.
Church Street remains closed as well.
