MAHWAH, N.J. (PIX11) -- A tractor trailer rammed through a construction zone Wednesday, colliding with a workers’ vehicle and snarling the morning commute along a New Jersey highway.

It happened in the northbound lanes of Route 17 near Mountainside Avenue in Mahwah. All northbound lanes remained closed of 7:30 a.m.

There was no immediate word of injuries or an estimated time for the roadway to be reopened.

Drivers can avoid the closure by taken the Garden State Parkway past the state border then taking the NJ Thruway in either direction, PIX11 traffic anchor Kaitlin Monte said.
