Traffic was limited to one lane on Route 22 East in Salem Township after a tractor-trailer overturned about 6 p.m. Wednesday.

The rig was the only vehicle reported in the accident near Liberty Transportation at Croft Road, just west of the intersection with Route 819, according to emergency dispatchers.

A state police dispatcher said he was unsure how long the delay would last. As of 11:45 p.m., the lane was still closed.

The driver of the truck was out and it was leaking fluids, the 911 dispatcher said.
