A crash involving several cars and a tractor trailer shut down the southbound lanes of I-295 in Burlington County, N.J. for a brief time on Thursday.

The truck and three cars collided just after 2 p.m. on Thursday near exit 52 in Columbus, N.J.

The collision sent antifreeze and oil spraying all over the roadway. Crews spread sand to clear up the mess.

Cars backed up for at least at least two miles as emergency crews worked at the scene.

New Jersey State Police reopened two lanes of the road around 2:30 p.m., but a third lane remained closed until 3:15 p.m., officials said.

Police did not have an exact number of people who suffered injuries, but said all of the cases were non-life-threatening.
