EAST BRUNSWICK, N.J. — Traffic is again flowing northbound on the New Jersey Turnpike after two tractor-trailers collided in East Brunswick.

Shortly after 7 a.m. Thursday, all lanes reopened near Interchange 9. Drivers are told to expect residual delays as the flow of traffic begins to normalize and accommodate the morning rush. It was there that two tractor-trailers collided about 8 p.m. Wednesday, according to New Jersey State Police.

The crash -- the cause of which is not yet known -- caused one of the trucks to erupt into flames and sparked nearly 12 hours of painful lane closures.

Black smoke billowing from the truck could be seen for miles. Police say the drivers suffered minor injuries.
