MAHWAH, N.J. (PIX11) -- This is something you do not want to see 10 days before Christmas: mounds of packages strewn across a New Jersey highway.

A FedEx truck driving north on I-287 near Exit 66 in Mahwah apparently lost control, busted through a side rail, came down an embankment and landed on a ramp to southbound 17, authorities said.

It happened early Monday. There was no immediate word of injuries.

The truck landed across the ramp, spilling its loot on the roadway on one of the busiest shipping days of the year. A second FedEx truck was brought in to pick up the packages.

The ramp will be closed indefinitely while crews clear the crash.

    Absolutely no need for the language because all you did was show your own intelligence and it is surely below average…Merry Christmas.
