    The driver of this overturned dump truck died in Wednesday morning's fiery crash.

    Motorists who use Interstate 195 to travel to Trenton should expect delays for the next few weeks following a deadly crash.

    Westbound traffic is restricted to one lane at the I-195 overpass in Robbinsville after Wednesday morning's fiery dump truck crash on the New Jersey Turnpike.

    Authorities say a dump truck overturned and burst into flames near Interchange 7A in Robbinsville. The driver, believed to be a 49-year-old Belleville man, was killed. The crash also damaged the overpass.

    Officials say the westbound trip I-195 toward Trenton is expected to be "very difficult" for up to six weeks.

    I-195 traffic will eventually use a new overpass that's under construction. Officials will try to accelerate completion of the project.

    Eastbound lanes on I-195 and the turnpike in both directions are open.
