Description:



At least one person was killed while dozens of people were hurt after over a dozen vehicles were involved in a crash on the New Jersey Turnpike in Middlesex County, New Jersey. The pileup, which included a bus and tractor trailers, occurred Monday around 9:15 p.m. in the southbound lanes of the Turnpike at exit 8A in Cranbury Township. At least one person was killed in the crash while 45 people were injured, police said. Officials have not yet revealed the conditions of the injured victims. At least four tractor-trailer trucks, two box trucks and a fully loaded bus were involved in the crash, in addition to 15 other vehicles, according to New Jersey State Police Sgt. Jeff Quinn. Police have not yet revealed the cause of the accident or if icy road conditions played a role. However, a Twitter user who took a picture of the scene described the roads between exits 8 and 8A as a "skating rink." All southbound lanes are currently blocked at exit 8A.
