The crash happened at 6:04 a.m. on I-280 eastbound at milepost 0.5 in Parsippany-Troy Hills, according to New Jersey State Police spokesperson Trooper Charles Marchan.

A preliminary investigation revealed that a Freightliner box truck was traveling east on I-80 locals exit 47A onto I-280 east when it is believed that the driver suffered a medical emergency where the truck traveled off the left side of the ramp and across the curbed median, Marchan said.

The Freightliner then crossed all lanes of I-280 east and entered the center median where it impacted and penetrated the guardrail before coming to an uncontrolled rest in the westbound lanes of I-280, Marchan said.

The driver’s condition was not released.

The crash remains under investigation, Marchan said.
