OAKLAND, N.J. -- A jack-knifed tractor-trailer jammed northbound Route 287 in Oakland mid-morning Monday.
The crash occurred just past the Skyline Drive entrance ramp onto the highway -- in the same area as a similar mishap last week.
The northbound highway was temporarily closed at Exit 57, creating a miles-long traffic jam.
Responders said the trailer was empty but that some fuel may have leaked into a nearby waterway.
Hazardous materials teams from Bergen County and Mahwah were dispatched, along with Mahwah firefighters.
