fedex truck

A man was injured when his car was rear-ended by a tractor-trailer, causing the truck to jackknife and burst into flames on the New Jersey Turnpike in South Brunswick, authorities said. The Jersey Journal reports.

The crash occurred at 3 a.m. Saturday when the FedEx tractor-trailer, driven by Elliot Remi, 32, of Queens, struck a Honda Odyssey from behind in the right lane of the southbound lanes of the Turnpike at milepost 77.1, New Jersey State Police said.

The driver of the Odyssey, Troy Claffee, 48, of the Bronx, was driving slowly on the highway, State Police said.

Police said the tractor-trailer jackknifed and “became fully engulfed” in flames. Both men were able to get out of their vehicles. Remi was not injured and Claffee was taken to a local hospital with injuries that were not life threatening, police said.

No charges have been filed at this time but the investigation is continuing, police said.
