An overturned tractor-trailer snarled traffic as snow fell on one of the busiest roads in the area for hours this morning.

The big rig tipped along Interstate-95 southbound near Enterprise Avenue (Exit 15) around 3:35 a.m.

Police closed the roadway at Broad Street (Exit 17) to divert traffic away from the crash scene.

No reports on any injuries.

For more than four hours the accident remained as did the line of cars caught behind it. The Platt Bridge (Route 291) cold be used as an alternate route.

The roadway finally reopened just before 8 a.m. though some clean up remained and so did backups as only one lane got past the wreckage.

This was one of many crashes along area roads overnight from simple fender benders to another jackknifed big rig along the New Jersey Turnpike northbound near Exit 7A that blocked at least one lane.
