Overturned Dump Truck Snares NJ Traffic on I-78

An overturned dump truck in New Jersey blocked two express lanes on the Interstate 78 Wednesday morning, causing an eight-mile delay on the expressway.

Gravel was scattered on the roadway across both local and express lanes, partially blocking the Exit 56-Elizabeth Avenue exit ramp from local lanes as officials investigated the scene just before 7 a.m. Only vehicles in the shoulder lane were able to get through.

Two eastbound express lanes on I-78 were closed as of 7:25 a.m., and drivers should expect eight-mile delays.

Officials are investigating the accident.
