Two crashes on Routes 78, 195 cause big delays
ROBBINSVILLE — Commuters had two headaches to deal with during the Thursday morning commute.
A tractor trailer spilled fuel onto the eastbound lanes of Route 78 near Route 31 in Clinton after a crash in the median. The incident created a multi-mile delay for the entire morning commute, as cleanup continued after 10 a.m.
A dumpster fell off a flatbed truck on Route 195 eastbound after it hit the overpass that carries traffic between the Turnpike and Route 195, dropping its load of cardboard into the left lane. A multimile eastbound delay developed on Route 195 along with a delay on the overpass.
The New Jersey State Police said there were no serious injuries in either crash but did not immediately return a message seeking additional information.
A crash on Route 1 in Edison near Route 287 late in the morning commute brought down wires and created delays in both directions approaching the area.
