Tractor-trailer hauling trash overturns on Turnpike
CARTERET (WABC) -- A tractor-trailer hauling trash overturned on the New Jersey Turnpike Monday morning, spilling debris all over the roadway.
The accident happened around 5 a.m. in the southbound truck lanes near interchange 12 in Carteret.
The tractor-trailer was originally traveling in the outer roadway and flipped over the guardrail, landing in the car lanes.
So much garbage was on the roadway that crews were using a snow plow to push it out of the way.
The driver suffered minor injuries, and another damaged car had to be towed from the scene.
