State Police said the tractor trailer on the southbound hit the abutment for Mt. Laurel Road several miles north of Exit 4 for Route 73 in Mount Laurel.

All lanes remain closed as of 5:30 a.m. for clean up and investigation. An engineer must be brought in to inspect the bridge, according to State Police, who said debris was scattered all over the roadway.

A medical helicopter was brought in to transport an occupant of the truck for serious injuries temporarily closing the northbound lanes which have since reopened.  The truck was the only vehicle involved in the crash.

Southbound commuters can use Interstate 295 to get around the closure by exiting the Turnpike at exit 7A for Interstate 195 west or exit 5 in Mt. Holly for Route 541.
