Overturned Truck Spills Lumber on Route 80 Ramp in Teaneck
Ramp closed for more than five hours
A tractor-trailer overturned on a ramp from Route 80 east to Route 95 south early Friday in Teaneck, spilling lumber across the road, state police said.
Crews were still working to clear the wood more than five hours after the truck flipped, which has closed the Exit 68 ramp. State Police Sgt. Adam Grossman said it was not immediately known when the ramp would be reopened.
The Teaneck Fire Department responded as a precaution after officials reported smoke coming from the big-rig, Grossman said. There were no injuries in the one-vehicle accident.
Grossman said the truck was uprighted around 8:30 a.m. and has since been removed.
There were no major traffic delays in the area. Additional details were not immediately available.
