Flipped truck on Turnpike ramp likely to cause delays

Submitted by New Jersey truck crash lawyer, Jeffrey Hark.


WOODBRIDGE – An overturned tractor trailer is partially blocking Exit 11 from the New Jersey Turnpike south to the Garden State Parkway.

The truck accident prompted NJ Transit to alert bus commuters around 3:45 p.m. that they could face delays if their bus uses the turnpike south.

The same ramp was the site of a fiery gasoline tanker crash last Tuesday that claimed the life of the driver after the tractor trailer overturned.
