Truck wedged under overpass – NBC10 Philadelphia

Expect delays on a stretch of the New Jersey Turnpike in South Jersey after a truck went off the road and became stuck under an overpass.

The tractor-trailer crash around 3:45 a.m. Tuesday caused crews to block the right lane of the southbound Turnpike between Routes 38 and 73 in Mount Laurel.

The truck partially overturned and became stuck under the overpass used by service vehicles.

There were no immediate backups, but expect traffic to increase as the morning rush hour continues.

The force of the wreck caused extensive damage to the front of the truck.

The truck driver had to be freed from the wreckage and was taken to hospital, a source close to the investigation said.

There’s no word yet on when the scene will be cleared.
