Tractor-Trailer Hits Building, Rolls Over on New Jersey Highway

Southbound lanes reopened on Route 17 in New Jersey after being closed for several hours following a tractor-trailer crash.

It’s unclear what caused the crash, which happened just after 12:30 a.m. Thursday in Rochelle Park by Prospect Avenue.

The truck appeared to have slammed into a building by the highway before rolling over on its side.

Officials were able to move the truck off the highway and into a nearby parking lot. Some power lines were being repaired following the crash.

The tractor-trailer was the only vehicle involved in the crash. The driver was able to get himself out of the truck.
