Overturned truck backs up I-80 traffic in Parsippany

PARSIPPANY -

An overturned dump truck caused a messy commute on I-80 in Parsippany Tuesday morning.

The truck lost a load that appeared to be sand around 9 a.m., collecting a flatbed truck hauling steel and another tractor-trailer in the accident.

Only minor injuries occurred, but guardrail repairs will be required throughout the day.

Police say the accident not only backed up traffic on I-80, but also on I-280 and Route 46 as well.
