BLOOMFIELD - A dump truck struck an overpass on the Garden State Parkway earlier today, causing delays along the roadway. The crash happened near the northbound Brookdale service area in Bloomfield.

The crash caused a water main to break. One contractor tells News 12 New Jersey the hydraulic lift began to rise and when the dump truck went under the bridge at the lowest point, it struck the pipes that run underneath the overpass.
