Crash Overturns Dump Truck, Rips Apart Van on NJ Roadway

A dump truck overturned and crushed a van along a busy South Jersey road Thursday morning leaving one person dead and causing traffic troubles.

Traffic could only get by on the shoulder before being stopped entirely after the deadly wreck along Route 70 near Lakehurst Road (County Route 530) in Browns Mills, Burlington County around 7 a.m.

The wreck left one person dead and the truck's load on the roadway, said county dispatchers.

As SkyForce10 hovered overhead after the crash, you could see the yellow dump truck on its side -- the front of the cab torn off. The wreck tore the roof off a white van that wound up backwards on the shoulder.

Traffic backed up at least a mile behind the crash.

After more than four hours, the crash investigation continued.
