NEW YORK (77 WABC) — A tanker truck overturned this morning on the New Jersey Turnpike, causing a large display of flames– seen for miles.
It happened on the northbound side of the western spur in East Rutherford. The incident also blocked the exit ramp to Exit 16W. As you would probably expect, it was causing major traffic backups in the area.
Investigators have not yet determined what led to the crash.
Reports say there are no injuries.
