Three people are dead in a single-vehicle crash in northern New Jersey that has snarled traffic leading to the Lincoln Tunnel.
Police say they believe speed contributed to the crash around 6 a.m. Thursday where Route 3 in North Bergen merges with the Route 495 approach to the tunnel leading into New York City.
Hudson County sheriff's office spokesman Mike Makarski tells The Jersey Journal two men and a woman were in the vehicle, which has a Massachusetts license plate. Their names have not been released.
All three lanes of Route 3 were closed for more than two hours, causing traffic to back up for miles.
The accident is under investigation.
