KNOWLTON TOWNSHIP, NJ (Warren County) -Two New Jersey State troopers and a driver were injured in a crash on Interstate 80 in Knowlton Township Thursday afternoon.
At 1:55 p.m., a trooper stopped a Honda Accord in the area of milepost 5.3 westbound. While the trooper was speaking with the driver outside of his vehicle, another trooper was traveling westbound in a Chevrolet Caprice, attempting to assist, state police said.
As the trooper was approaching the stop, the Caprice was struck in the rear by a Mack dump truck. The impact of the crash forced the Caprice onto the right shoulder and into the rear of the Honda, which was then pushed forward striking the trooper and the driver of the Honda.
Both troopers and the driver of the Honda were airlifted to Morristown Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the dump truck was not injured in the crash, state police said.
Cause of the crash is still under investigation, state police said.
