Two men died after a tractor trailer collided with the support beam of a bridge on the New Jersey Turnpike in Robbinsville, Mercer County, Thursday night.
The crash occurred in the northbound lanes of the turnpike near the Robbinsville exit at 9:22 p.m. The truck was carrying watermelons which spilled onto the road after the crash.
The driver of the truck was ejected, and his male passenger sustained fatal injuries, New Jersey State Police Sgt. Philip Curry said.
The crash caused an overnight closure of the highway, before lanes were reopened Friday morning.
