Earlier today, motorists in Southern Ocean County had a slow go during their morning commutes. Route 9 was closed in both directions in Tuckerton in the area of Great Bay Blvd due to a serious accident and downed utility poles.

The accident scene has since been cleared and Route 9 is back open in both directions.
