ROBBINSVILLE - New Jersey Turnpike officials say all lanes of the Turnpike are open following a fiery crash that shut down the Turnpike earlier today.

State police say a tractor-trailer overturned and burst into flames in Robbinsville near Interchange 7A.

The incident was initially reported at around 10 a.m.

State police reported on its official Twitter account that the driver of the truck was killed.

Interstate 195 was shuttered in both directions after the crash because the truck hit the Interstate 195 overpass. Westbound traffic on I-195 is still being diverted at Exit 7. Eastbound lanes are open.

Repair work continues on the bridge. Engineers are assessing the damage to the overpass from the crash.
