Storm Watch: 1 Dead, 23 Injured In 15 Car Pile Up

Dump Truck Jumps Divider On Meadowlands Parkway

 

NEW YORK (CBS) ― It was a fatal accident that still hasn't been cleared up.

A dumptruck got stuck on a Meadowlands Parkway divider, and fifteen cars piled up behind. Five people were rushed to area hospitals, and 23 were treated at the scene. One person has died. Route 3 eastbound is closed near the Parkway at Route 17. Drivers are advised to get off at Route 17 North and get onto Route 120 to make their way east.

 

This weekend's snowfall, and overnight ice, are also taking their toll on morning commuters. The white fluffy flakes turned gray and slushy, turning roadways slick like ice-skating rinks. "[it's] Crazy. Crazy. There's accidents all over the place," said tow truck operator Keith Roman. "People breaking down getting stuck sliding."

During the night, the road conditions, especially on the highways are severe & really nasty.

In the morning it looks like a crazy wind blew off all yesterday's "winter for a day"
