A truck crash slowed drivers on the New Jersey Turnpike overnight

NBC Universal, Inc.

A tractor-trailer crashed into the woods, blocking the New Jersey Turnpike approaching the Delaware Memorial Bridge during the Thursday morning commute.

The jackknifed big rig, which said FedEx on the trailer, crashed on the southbound turnpike in Carneys Point Township just after 5 a.m., the New Jersey Turnpike said. By 6:15 a.m. some traffic appeared to slowly be getting by the scene in one lane, but delays remained.

It is unclear if anyone was hurt.

A white foam appeared to be used on the roadway near the crashed truck.

The turnpike said all lanes were reopened as of 7:20 a.m.

Drivers needing to get into Delaware were urged to use Interstate 295 instead, but to be prepared for potential slowdowns.
