Salt Truck Overturns in Crash With Tractor-Trailer Along I-295

A salt truck overturned during a three-vehicle wreck with a big rig along a South Jersey highway Thursday morning.

The wreck left the salt truck flipped over along the side Interstate 295 southbound near Exit 18 (Route 678) in East Greenwich Township, New Jersey around 5:25 a.m., said New Jersey State Police.

The driver of the NJDot salt truck was taken to Cooper University Hospital with undisclosed injuries, said police.

The crash, which left a tractor-trailer jackknifed, blocked the right and center lanes leaving only one lane getting by the scene.

A large amount of emergency personnel responded to the scene as they searched for a cause. They also cleared salt that spilled onto the roadway before reopening the road.
