Troop cars hit by tow truck

This is the latest crash involving troopers at an emergency scene.

On Feb. 23, three State Police vehicles blocking a crash scene on Route 80 were totaled when a tow truck smashed into them.

Sgt. Philip Curry said marked vehicles with their emergency lights on and flares in the road had blocked the left and center lanes on the eastbound side near Exit 19 (Route 517) around 11:15 p.m.

A heavy-duty tow truck pulling a box truck plowed into the blocked lanes and hit the three troop cars and an Allamuchy ambulance. The troopers were outside the vehicles at the time of impact and were not injured. The tow truck operator was not injured and was issued a summons for careless driving
