A tractor-trailer collided with a car and jackknifed as it spilled fuel onto a busy South Jersey roadway during the morning commute Wednesday.

The crash along U.S. Route 322 just south of the interchange with Interstate 295 in Woolwich Township also took out some overhead power lines causing a road closure that lasted for hours.

No one was hurt, said Woolwich Township Police..

Crews closed the roadway in both directions as they worked to clear the scene. Motorists could use Oak Grove Road to get around the scene, said NBC10 First Alert Traffic reporter Jessica Boyington.

The road remained closed as of noon as power crews worked to get the wires fixed, said police.
