    A tractor-trailer and car collided along Interstate 95 in New Jersey leaving a woman dead and the roadway closed early Thursday.

    The deadly wreck left I-95 northbound closed near Exit 4 (Route 31) in Hopewell Township, Mercer County, around 3 a.m., said New Jersey State Police.

    The female crashed into the back of a tractor-trailer that was parked on the shoulder of the highway, said state police Sgt. Jeff Flynn.

    The unidentified woman's car burst into flames and she died on the scene.

    After closing down the roadway as they investigated, police slowly reopened lanes but as of 5 a.m. two lanes remained closed.

    U.S. Route 1 could be used as an alternate.
