    One person is dead following a fiery crash involving a tractor-trailer and box truck on the New Jersey Turnpike.
    The accident happened around 1:30 a.m. Tuesday in the southbound lanes of the Turnpike between Exits 8A and 8 in Hightstown, Mercer County.
    The UPS tractor-trailer burst into flames after colliding with the box truck. Officials say it took over an hour for fire crews to get the flames under control.
    Traffic was jammed for roughly 6 hours approaching the accident scene. Crews have since moved much of the wreckage onto a nearby construction area and traffic is now getting by.
    There is no word on the identity of the person killed in the crash.

    Richard Harrow Would you pay a dime to see this?

    I can confirm for all of you that our driver was not injured in the crash, though our tractor trailer was a loss. A 33-year old NJ man driving a box truck rear-ended our feeder trailer early this morning, the driver of the box truck died as a result.
