A 54-year-old Burlington Township man was killed Tuesday when his car apparently plowed into the rear of a tractor-trailer while traveling south on the New Jersey Turnpike, authorities said.
State Police said the accident occurred at 5:13 p.m. near Exit 7 in Chesterfield Township, Burlington County.
Sgt. Brian Polite identified the driver as Mario Francois. He said Francois was driving a Toyota Camry and rammed the back of a parked tractor-trailer.
Polite said the truck driver, who had stopped to check his tires, was not injured. Some southbound lanes on the turnpike were closed for several hours after the accident. - Jennifer Lin
